Keesh's Inkspiration Colour Challenge #6 & Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #11



When I saw Keesh's colour challenge this week I went WOW - I love these colours together but was too busy to go "play" with them until today! In the meantime I saw Karen Giron's sketch challenge and decided I would combine the two as I thought they would work well together. Looking at the images together there seems to be a butterfly overdose - LOL.



I've used a combination of Garden Whimsy and the new Fresh Cuts set. A touch of Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, some Flower Fusion felt flowers and orange rhinestones finish off the look. I found I needed to stamp off the Pumpkin Pie background as it was too strong at first - the poor butterfly got a little lost. The butterfly has also been stamped twice - once to get the detail of his antennae on the card, and the second time to be cut out and raised to add dimension to his wings.

And please don't forget the SCS Victorian Bushfore Non-Raffle - it's ending this Friday - you have to be in it to win one of the wonderful prizes - click on the logo on top of my sidebar for more information...Many Thanx xXx

Oh, so pretty, Debbie! I love those colors together, too. And I love how you tipped the edges of the butterfly's wings with the pink... an excellent effect!
