JustRite Challenge 64 (2nd Entry): Inspiration

I was so surprised when I saw Sharon's sample card for this JustRite challenge, as I'd had the very same paper pad on my craft table since before Christmas, having used it for another bday card that I've not yet posted. I'd also borrowed Spellbinders' Butterflies' Circles die from my friend and thought it would be such a nice compliment to this paper. Since I also have sooo many birthdays that I need cards for soon, I just had to put paper and dies together to create another card for this challenge! You truly inspired me, Sharon, and I really needed that after the holidays.
My card is fairly simple, but in searching for a blue/aqua shade of paper to coordinate, I decided to airbrush a piece of white vellum with Copic BG15 (Aqua). I then die cut my vellum circle and stamped my sentiment from JR's Cherish the Memories Nested Sentiments in Dark Chocolate ink, added a narrow dark chocolate frame and popped on a double-stacked small butterfly from Nested Butterflies Two cut from the aqua & white vellum. A bit of gathered Bridal Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, inspired by the billowy curtains in the inspiration photo, and Martha Stewart 'Cloud' seam binding bow and it's ready to mail! I totally LOVE this color combo!
