Celebrate card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-dies from Lil' Inker DesignsFor my take on the challenge, I took my inspiration from the dimensional butterflies and from the pastel colors on the gray background and incorporated both of those elements in my design.  My gray background is a super pale one.  I added a trio of pastel butterflies, cut with stitched butterfly dies from Lil' Inker Designs, to the panel.  For dimension, I layered white vellum over the cardstock die cuts, adhering the vellum just at the center so that the wings could be folded back for dimension.  The butterfly bodies were added on with tiny dots of pale pink Liquid Pearls.  

For the sentiment, instead of stamping, I die cut the word "celebrate" from cardstock and craft foam using another Lil' Inker Designs die.  I layered the two die cut pieces and placed them on the cardfront.  The tone on tone look is so pretty and subtle, but the dimension helps it to really stand out.
