Butterfly with Tissue Paper Background

Hello! Some days a card is easier to make than others.  I found this card came together easy once I decided to use a large Butterfly stamp from  Repeat Impressions.  I decided to create the background with tissue paper using a watercoloring method.  I used Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Squeezed Lemonade to watercolor the tissue paper which I scrunched up and glued to a panel of White CS.  I stamped the Repeat Impressions sentiment with Memento Tuxedo black directly to the tissue paper layer.  I stamped the Butterfly with same black ink and colored with Memento Markers and fussy cut.  Assembled the card with an orange card base following a sketch from the challenge below and added some dew drops and a ring around the butterfly.
