Butterfly Thanks - The Friday Mashup #201

This challenge presented me with a bit of difficulty.  At The Friday Mashup this week, it was a colour challenge - Rich Razzelberry, Smoky Slate and Pacific Point, not colours I would have put together.  The other element of the challenge was to create a "See-thru element (window, acetate, vellum" on the project.  It took me some thinking, but eventually decided on using the SAB Sheer Perfection Vellum pack - the butterflies, and create a window using the Window Frame collection framelits.

This Week's Mash Up! Challenge: 
  • Create a project using Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate & Pacific Point*". 
  • Create a project with a "See-thru element (window, acetate, vellum). 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project "using the colors above and a see thru element". 
I apolize for the colour of the card.  I don't understand the yellowish tint on the left hand side.

After embossing the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Woodgrain embossing folder, a window was die cut into the top half using the Window Frame Collection Framelit.  A piece of Window sheet was adhered at the back to cover the opening.

Using the die cut window as a template, only the butterflies showing through the window were coloured.  They were coloured on the wrong side using markers in the colours of the challenge.

The Smoky Slate cardstock was adhered to the vellum piece using dimensionals giving depth to the window.  This was adhered to Whisper White cardstock, and then a Rich Razzelberry base.

Before attaching the Whisper White to the base, 1/2 piece of 1 1/4" Pacific Point grosgrain ribbon which was frayed on the cut edge, was adhered below the window. 

Using the beautiful wings embosslet die, some butterflies were die cut and adhered to the front of the card, and tiny pearls placed on their bodies.

The sentiment is from "Lots of Thanks' and was die cut using the Banner Framelits.

I also used a Pacific Point marker and tiny pearls.
