Butterflies Color Inspiration

So I thought I was finally on time to do one of Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenges this week. I've missed so many the last few weeks. So I did up a cute card below... and don't you know I missed the deadline. So, I'm just gonna post it anyway for your enjoyment.

Here is the color inspiration... Just for the record, I would NEVER have come up with these colors and I will probably never put them together again. But I am pretty happy with the card I came up with. I just love this cute set--- Flight of the Butterfly. It was one of the first sets in the new catalog I noticed. So, I was happy to get a chance to use it for this challenge.

This card is pretty easy breezy. I just stamped the butterfly three times... once in Rose Red, once in Kiwi Kiss and once (second stamped) in Pacific Point and then second stamped the dots in Basic Black. Last but not least, I added a little bit of dazzling diamonds around the middle of each butterfly using the two-way glue pen. Then I layered each butterfly on the coordinating cardstock. In the fourth spot, I stamped the "hope your day" saying in Basic Black and added the little flower in Regal Rose with a small clear Rhinestone Brad in the middle.

I mounted the four rectangles on Basic Black and layered that on Whisper White cardstock with a very thin border. The card itself is Basic Black and there is a 2" piece of Kiwi Kiss polka dot designer paper from the Bella Rose collection vertical on the card.

I'm sad I missed the challenge, but I love my little butterfly card... I may have to try it in my more traditional colors.

This is adorable, Amy!! I'm having so much fun pouring through the new catalog. It's been so long!!
Thank you for the gorgeous card you sent me. Nik has been reproducing the cute monkey on my card in little drawings that she is giving to me as presents. So cute.
Thanks for popping by my blog, too. That was a fun surprise!
