Beauty Abounds Butterfly

Happy Monday all! Decided to start with a little creativity today! Have to go out later and NOT looking forward to that. The wind sounds terrible. Hopefully it dies down some!

Here is the card I came up with

Based on this color challenge from Color Throwdown #CTD527. They always inspire me!!

Challenge colors are Navy, Gray and Green. In Stampin' Up! colors I chose Blueberry Bushel, Smoky Slate and Granny Apple Green. I grabbed a couple new sets from the Occasions Catalog, Beauty Abounds and Butterfly Gala. Beauty Abounds will definitely be a favorite - I love sets with elements like that. Spatters and dots! Card base is Granny Apple, accent layer of Blueberry, background Whisper White. I inked the larger dot image with Blueberry and stamped full strength and off once and again full strength. Smaller circles in Granny Apple, and splatters in Smoky Slate stamped off once. The butterfly from Butterfly Gala was stamped in Memento Black, punched with the coordinating punch and colored with markers. Hind site, blends with ink might have been better for a slightly lighter look. Butterflies are attached with a dimensional. Ribbon is Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave. Saying is from Butterfly Gala and stamped bottom center in Blueberry. Lastly, a few Glitter Enamel Dots in Granny Apple Green.

**Note: Supply of the Butterfly Duet Punch has been depleted and it is currently unavailable, but it will return!

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a GREAT Day!! Product details and shopping links below.

So pretty! Love the spots and splatters behind the butterfly--they add so much depth and interest. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!
