stillADDinktive Challenge-Sketch Challenge #2!

I am really loving the new challenges at "stillADDinktive". Not only do we have a color challenge or a sketch challenge but we have BOTH combined! Take a peek at the duo challenge for this week:

The colors are "Tempting Turquoise, Summer Starfruit and Chocolate Chip". Now when the new In-Colors for this year debuted, I was not a fan of Summer Starfruit. I've used it quite a bit lately and it really is growing on me. Here is my card for this week:

Some of you know me well enough to know that when a new Stampin' Up! catalog comes to my mailbox, the first thing on my list is always anything to do with butterflies. I just love them. And this one is no different. It is super humungous and gorgeous! I embossed "her" (notice the pearls, it's a her) using VersaMark Ink and Tempting Turquoise Embossing Powder on the Birds of a Feather Designer Paper. Yes I  had to chop some of the image but I just love the look of this!

I outlined the butterfly layer with a thin layer of Chocolate Chip Cardstock and layered that over a square cut with the Scallop Square Die and Tempting Turquoise Cardstock. I love the look of the 3 colors together. The chocolate chip makes the other 2 colors really "pop" doesn't it?
