Butterfly Trio – Inkspirations Challenge #60


So, in follow up to yesterday’s post – YES, this is another birthday card! For this card, I started with the latest and greatest colour challenge on the Inkspirations Challenge Blog!

I love all of these colours individually but had a really hard time putting them together. I think it’s because spring hasn’t sprung yet. Once the flowers start to bloom, its easier to craft in flower-type colours. Right now I’m drawn to gray and white and gray and the occasional brown – yeah winter on the West Coast!

For this card, I decided that I’d use So Saffron for the base and add a horizontal piece of Rose Red which I stamped tone-on-tone with the littlest butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly. Next, I added a vertical layered panel in the challenge colours and added a trio of butterflies.

What I did was emboss various images from Flight of the Butterfly with white embossing powder and punched them out with the Butterfly punch. I added little embellishments to each one and then a birthday sentiment along the bottom.

What can you do with this colour combo? Head on over to Inkspirations Challenge Blog and show us your stuff!
