PTI 9th Anniversary Day 8: Color Pop Fortune Teller

Day 8 during Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary brings us to another fun challenge on Nichole's blog. Our instructions were to print out the Color Pop Fortune Teller square, fold it according to her detailed instructions and create a project using at least three colors selected using this tool. Before flipping back and forth, we were to pick a number between 2-5 and our birth month (April) for our color scheme. My numbers were 4 and 4, and the "flipped" colors were Raspberry Fizz, New Leaf and Ripe Avocado.

I tried something new to me, and not sure I'd do it again. It was it bit more work than I had bargained for making sure not to overlap color or go outside my margin. First, I die cut the butterfly three times on a 4x5.25" piece of white card stock, that would eventually be placed over my white card base. My ink blending tools using Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf ink pads went to work on the card base. Then I stamped Ripe Avocado butterfly highlights, a few dots using a Gelly Roll Glitter Pen, and my sentiment stamped also in Ripe Avocado. The top piece was then adhered to the card base. Another challenge met as I'm pushing myself to finish two more.

Here's my card:
