Rainbow Card Challenge #2 - One of My Favorites!

Hello, friends! It's February 1 and a new challenge at The Rainbow Card Challenge! I have always enjoyed color, and am excited to share my creations with you each month based on the photo prompt! Can you guess our color for February by looking at my card?
February is Orange Opulence! I happen to LOVE orange. I think it's a bright, happy color, and it makes me smile. That being said, my card has more of a muted, natural orange color today as I used Stampin' Up!'s Pumpkin Pie color. :)

I first embossed the fern from Butterfly Basics (Stampin' Up!) using VersaMark and White EP. Then I created my wash with a brush using PP. I stamped the fern again in PP, as well as the postmark and hive stamps. The butterfly was watercolored using thinner colors, then cut out using the Thinlits die, and then sprayed with Gold Glimmermist. To get a more muted color, I soaked up some of the color as I went with a paper towel. I added a vellum leaf and strips of the Copper paper. 

I hope you will come check out {this new monthly challenge} and play along with us! Be sure to check out what my teamies made too!
