Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance Fun Fold for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Today our challenge is a color challenge and I have picked Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Basic White for my card. Take a look see...

Many demonstrators have done this Double Diamond Fun Fold but I chose to follow  Julie Demateo hereI did do things a little differently with my DSP and stamping but the template is the same as Julie's.

My card base is Coastal Cabana with mats of Night of Navy and heat embossed Balmy Blue Country Gingham Designer Series Paper panels. The butterflies are from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Seaside Bay Stamp Set. The big die cut butterfly (Brilliant Wings Dies) is colored with Balmy Blue and Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write Markers.
