Create with Connie and Mary Colour Challenge #246

Hello Everyone,

We've had rain and showers here once again the last few days so thats allowed my a little stamping time today.  I've decided to play along with the colour challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary

Here are the colours for the challenge
2013 Thursday Challenges-009

Together these are quite strong colours, so I wanted to team them with white.  Here is my card below using the Sale-a-bration stamp set Bloomin Marvelous and Papillon Potpourri butterfly stamp set.  My base card is Naturals White with my stamping on Whisper White which was then embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Flowers and leaves have been stamped with the challenge colours, some were stamped off to create softer shades, before embossing. I've added a border strip of Island Indigo card with Lace Tape over the top.  I've stamped & cut extra flowers with Calypso coral raised on  foam dots and added some layered butterflies both in Real Red and a larger one in Calypso Coral which have been blinged up with our Basic Rhinestones.

Here is a closer look to see the butterflies better

and again

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate your comments.  Have a great week.
