Mint Butterfly
by Jeanne Jachna

I know you were expecting a holiday card right?  Sometimes the unexpected can be delightful!   I've been playing more and more with watercolors and wanted to try for something really soft this time.   I started by painting a really loose wash on some card stock.  I love the mint color that I achieved!  
I cut the Spinning Circles on the watercolor panel.  I wanted to keep the Bellina Flora die cut the same color as the background so I cut it from the same watercolor paper.  
I chose a small sentiment that would fit in the lower corner of the panel.  The Thank  You from the Flower Patch Clear Stamp Set was the perfect shape and size. 
I layered the panel over a card - again made from the same watercolor paper.   I made sure the inside of the card was the smooth side of the watercolor paper so I will have an easy time stamping a sentiment inside or writing a personal note.   I wanted to show those beautiful Spinning Circles off so I adhered it with adhesive foam tape so it's popped up.
I'm glad I tried something new and am so happy with how this turned out!   What will you make today?

Beautiful Jeanne - just so lovely - I like this die cut and the background especially with a little bling!

Hi Jeanne, This is really lovely, the background is so subtle with pastel colours, and the die-cuts are beautifully delicate, a truly gorgeous card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

That is one minty fresh card, Jeanne. You did get a great color out of your blues and greens, and all those fresh colors make for a great background. There is a wonderful motion in your card, but it is more peaceful, than frenetic. Thanks for all the wonderful, and refreshing, ideas.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and you and your family will have a great Christmas season. No doubt you are working your socks off, as there are never enough hours for all things Christmas- crafty.

Your devoted blog pal,

Just beautiful...love all those wonderful soft colors!
