I just had to play along with the latest Embellish colour challenge. Ashley's colour choices are always so classy and the ladies that play along are so very talented. I learn something new with each challenge. I loved this colour challenge so much that I'm actually in the process of creating yet another card but without the butterfly.
This card is also to fulfill this weeks CAS-tastic challenge requirements to add a little bit of green. I also used last weeks Fall-to-layout sketch to help bring the colours together. The Kraft butterfly was made using my PTI Polkadot background basics I with Old Olive ink. I also sponged the edges of each butterfly with black ink to give the layers more definition. The rhinestones weren't adhered exactly where I would have like them but once they were there they were stuck for good.
Hope you all have a fantastic and creative weekend. May the sun shine upon you. I'm going to try and relax a bit but I'm finding that my nerves are just a little shot with all this wait and see going on with the selling of our house. Have I told you yet that I hope never to have to do this again? LOL.
