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?

  1. I have been admiring your beautiful butterfly for the last couple of weeks Debbie, she is just gorgeous. I like how you stamped and embossed on the DSP and added the pearls to finish her off.

    1. Thanks Susan. The embossing is so pretty in person!

  2. What Joyce said! Ever since I saw this card on the blog, I have been wanting to tell you how beautiful it is!

  3. Yes, I had the same thoughts as Susan and Lisa and Debbie, I hold you responsible for me just having to put in another pre-order! ;) Your gorgeous card was the inspiration I needed to get that beautiful stamp. It's now 'winging' its way via the postie. This card certainly has the wow factor.

  4. Yep! I might have to put in an extra special order for that butterfly too :)
    You've made it look so beautiful! Gorgeous card Debbie!

  5. Love how big, bright & bold this card is Debbie! It is a stunning piece of art! LOL, the butterfly is now on my next order too. :)
