Spread the Love

Found this challenge Wednesday and I didn't have time to get to it. So here's the Sweet Stampin challenge card that I entered. The challenge: you had to use a minimum of three of these four colors- Almost Amethyst, Rose, Red, Certainly Celery, and Pretty in Pink.
My card base is C Celery followed by Rose Red. I took a PP scrap and stamped several of the stamps from Butterflies of Happiness and stamped them into a baby wipe that had reinker drops of the four colors and stamped randomly makiing a background DSP of my own. Two of the butterflies I used the same stamping technique and stamped them on white cs, then cut them out. The butterflies' bodies were then stamped on white cs using Going Gray, cut out and glued to the butterflies' wings. The larger butterfly was glued directly to the cs and it's rings were raised using SU recycled foam. The second butterfly was glued down entirely on the left side and the top half of the right wing was popped up in the same manner as the first. On the A Amethyst scrap I used a CTMH set, Delightful Things, inked in AA. My friend Kristin is a CTMH consultant.  My Sentiment is a little askew on purpose. Just trying to be a wee bit different cuz everything is always lined up and I try to get it perfect. One of my cards this week was not perfect and it seems no one would have known if I hadn't mentioned it!! This was enough of an RX so I will skip that element today. Just a wee bit different.

Thanks for coming by!

P.S. Started another fire today, all by myself. Lily was with me to witness the event. No worries, no more pics!

Great card! I love these butterflies. Nice job with the color combo.

Enjoy the fire {I am assuming you mean in the fireplace :) } I love a real fireplace. Our's is gas and doesn't have the same ambience, but I can easily start it my self.

Have a great week end.
