Create with Connie and Mary 244

Hello Everyone,

This week there is a colour challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary which I wanted to join in with.  Here are the colour selections
2013 Thursday Challenges-007

The blue shades in the challenge are colours I like to use often.  Not the Daffodil delight, so much, so had to put on my thinking cap for this challenge to come up with a card that I was happy with.  If in doubt, I usually go with butterflies.

Here is my card.

I've used stamps of Everything Eleanor, Perfectly Penned, En Francais and Papillon Potpourri with Beautiful Butterfly Bigz die & Elegant Butterfly punch for my layered butterfly, plus Ovals Framelits.  I've also added texture with embossing folders of Fancy Fan and Vintage Wallpaper.  The Pin is non SU from my stash through the Satin ribbon which is retired also from my stash.  The top Not Quite Navy butterfly was stamped with Illuminate ink.

Here is a closer look

Thanks so much for taking a look at my card.  Please feel free to make comments or provide feedback, as I love to read them.
