The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: square.
The AAA cards Challenge is: hello.

I've combined the two in this square hello card.
To make it I used a piece of Schut Watercolor paper and ink smooshed on Distress inks Wilted violet and picked raspberry, I diluted it with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in the frost variant instead of water, I wanted this nice sparkly panel. I ordered two of these shimmer spritzes frost and sparkle. It's the first time I used them and I didn't know which to choose, but I'm happy with this frost look.
I then diecut the Simon Says Stamp painted hello from the panel and from black cardstock and inlaid it into the panel.
Raised the panel with foamtape and adhered it to the card base.
I diecut some butterflies from "normal" cardstock as in not watercolor paper.  For these I swiped the inkpads across the paper, spritzed them too with the shimmer spritz and then die cut some butterflies out of it.
I think it's a die from Olba, but I'm not sure got it second hand from a Facebook group.
