CCMC141-Color Challenge

Love, Love, Love this color combination. The colors speak "SPRING" to me! You can find more inspiration if you visit the Create with Connie & Mary blog. Check it out! Don't you just love the photo that utilizes those colors? Also, remember that anyone who submits to our challenge will be entered into a drawing for a subscription to "Create with Connie & Mary's Summer Edition". For each entry during the month, you will have one chance at winning. One drawing per month!

My card for today:

I used the "Rock n Roll" ink technique on my butterfly. I first inked him in So Saffron Ink and then rolled the edges only, in Real Red Ink. I stamped him inside the oval and stamped him again on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut him out with my Butterfly Punch. Add a few Rhinestone Jewels and a Stampin' Dimensional for height:
Supplies for card:
  • Stamp Set: Butterfly Prints
  • Cardstock: Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Real Red, Whisper White
  • Tools: Big Shot, Ovals Die, Ribbon Punch, Butterfly Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Inks: So Saffron, Real Red, Crumb Cake
