Classy and Elegant Color Splash

Hi!

Well, my family and friends already knew I had an addiction to paper and it's one of the reasons I started this blog recently WELL I think I have found a new place to "Play" to enable this addiction....Its The Play Date Cafe!!! As I stated last week, I have been wanting to carve out time to finally make one of their challenges, well now I think I am going to make it a priority to do so. When I saw the new challenge I knew I had to play again, and I had so many ideas going in my head I think I could have made an endless supply of cards with this concept if only time permitted!! However, with this card it actually took a totally different direction than I intended because I was so in love with the designer paper I just let it be the focal point and threw out my original sketch. I love these colors together!

The Challenge for the week is Color Splash which is Black and White with a Hint of Green! I was inspired by the focus of the Design Team this week which was the beautiful butterfly they used by the sponsor Memory Box.  I stamped 4 butterflies from Papertrey Inks With Sympathy in Certainly Celery by Stampin' UP! Next I punched them out using an EK Success circle punch and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  For a finishing touch I added an embossed butterfly with pearls!



I am going to add my card to Moxie Fab's Classy and Elegant Challange,  Flutter By Wednesday Challenge, and another fun one Jazzy Paper Desings!

Hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
~Warm Aloha!
