INSPIRED BUTTERFLY for CREATE WITH... and COLOR THROWDOWN

This is one of those cards that I'm not going to disclose how long it took me to design it! I fiddled and fiddled with it throughout the day until finally coming up with an acceptable overall design that I'm pretty happy with. I combined two challenges: Create with Connie & Mary Sketch Challenge #106 and Color Throwdown #1oo of Real Red, Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, and Certainly Celery. I have always loved Real Red and Regal Rose together ... add some blue and green and you've got one terrific color combo!




RECIPE
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Flight of the Butterfly, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Sweet Always DP (retired), Whisper White, Real Red, Regal Rose, and Baja Breeze CS
Ink: Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, and Real Red
Embellishments: Baja Breeze Buttons, 1/4" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Word Window Punch, Circle Cutter, Corner Rounder, Butterfly Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals


Thank you for stopping by today!

What a beauty this one is! Love the colours, love the layout - you always tie everything together so well! Now.....do tell me, how do you get such beautiful clear photos of your cards? I'm struggling with that like you'd never believe!
