Make It Monday #321 & The Card Concept #92

Hi there!
I'm popping in this afternoon to share a card that I made for this week's

I was also inspired by the inspiration photo at 
The Card Concept #92 {Bold Bloom} when I chose my colours:

I then layered a Tim Holtz stencil over my panel and blended Altenew Coral Berries
ink over top.

in versamark and heat embossed it in cream to match the butterfly.
I trimmed it out and adhered it to my card using dimensional adhesive.
