CCMC238 - Create with Connie and Mary Colour Challenge

Hi Everyone,

This week there is a colour challenge at Create with Connie and Mary

2013 Thursday Challenges-001

These colours remind me of Flowers and Spring, but aren't a colour combo I would use often.

This is what I've created using the sets Oh Hello and Papillon Potpourri.  I wanted to do something a little different, an Accetate Card.   Yes it's been a while.  These were a class favourite a few years back.  I've cut my accetate base with the Square Scallop die and stamped with stazon white ink on the front with the Oval pattern stamp from Oh Hello and stamped a butterfly into the corner of the front with Papillon Potpourri.  I've lined the inner back of the card with Calypso Coral card and stuck the greeting onto the inside. 

I've then wrapped the Island Indigo Ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street pack around the accetate front cover and tied it off.  Stamped another butterfly in Island Indigo Ink and added to the front and used my markers to colour the flower, stamped cut and added to the front of the accetate.  Here is a closer look at the butterfly corner on the card front.

For these types of cards I like to add an additional piece of WW card to the back for my personal message so as not to spoil the clear look from the front.  I hope you've enjoyed viewing a different type of  card.  Thanks so much for stopping by and feel free to comment, as I love the feedback.
