Make it Monday #251 Gradient watercolor Die Cuts

Wow you just need to check out what Dawn, at Capture the Moment has done this week.  It is so bright and fun and easy to do.  I'm going to get right to it.  Here is my card.
 I used a die from Die-namics to make this cut, called Four Way Chevron.  I did not have one from PTI.  After water coloring some paper with Zig Clean Color pens using all greens, I left it in the die and applied adhesive to the back and then pasted it to the card base of GKD Sage Green, and peeled off the negative.  
I then cut a border with a Spellbinder die and the beautiful butterfly was made with What the Doodle Butterfly from PTI.  

Here is another view showing the Wink of Stella that I applied to the entire butterfly.  The sentiment is embossed with Platinum EP and is from the same PTI stamp set.

I will enter this card in these challenges:
