Guest Design at Lawnscaping--take 2!

This is my 2nd (and last ) guest design challenge over Lawnscaping. I have been having so much fun looking through all the entries. Well, it's time to start a new one. This new challenge is fun, fun, fun!
The theme is Color Splash. In case you wonder, what is color splash? It is actually a photography feature. You an see some images from this link and will get the idea. Fun, huh?

Here is my interpretation. Basically I created a white on white background. All you see is the textured background with the very two vibrant butterflies as the main image. I used pink and red  alcohol inks on regular card stock and left a bit of white to show the contrast of the colors. With two butterflies, I think the anniversary sentiment seems perfect for this design
happy anniversary
I used the Ranger's Liquid Pearl Dimensional Glue to add the droplets of details on the butterflies. The SRM stickers are perfect for applying sentiment over the white embossed flower images. I hope this inspired you to get creative!

Lastly, I want to thank Lawnscaping for giving me this chance to guest design along with the super talented DT! Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is a PERFECT anniversary card, Virginia! It's like the two vibrant butterflies are a nice change from the normal hearts you'd see on an anni card. Brilliant!

You are the queen of color Virginia. I know this only has one primary color, but I love when you use deep reds, oranges, etc. So, so beautiful in true Virginia style!
