Butterfly, Ombre Style

Happy Friday!  I'm loving all the ombre designs I'm seeing across the inter webs!  From hair, to paint to crafting it sure is a hot topic right now.  I got busy with the beautiful butterfly die and came up with this simple, easy to do card.

I picked out 3 shades (light, dark and medium) of the same color of card stock and die cut each with the butterfly.  I then cut the butterflies into thirds horizontally with my paper trimmer.  Whether you want it to go from light to dark or dark to light is up to you- I like it both ways.  For my card I started with dark on the top and went down to the lightest color.
