Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #5

This week, we have some of my favorite colors in the challenge:

Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Close to Cocoa

I've got Mother's Day on the brain, so here's my design:

I used my Crop-A-Dile to do the dry embossing. I used the reinkers for the 4 colors, Diamond Glaze, Pearl Ex, acetate, and the tissue paper that comes with acetate to do create the butterfly. This technique comes from MaryJo McGraw. I don't have a Stampin' Up corner rounder to create a scalloped edge, so I create my own by punching out several 3/4" circles and attaching them individually.

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Stampin' Up All Holidays, Little Pieces, Magenta butterfly
Paper: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, DSP by K & Company
Ink: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Close to Cocoa, StazOn Black
Other: Acetate, Diamond Glaze, Pearl Ex (Sparkle Gold, Spring Green, Turquoise, Macropearl), 1/2" circle punch, ribbon scrap, Making Memories mini square brad

Hey there! What an absolutely lovely card!!! I love the butterfly and the way you colored it. You don't need a SU corner rounder! The scalloped edge that you created is WAY cooler! I love how you layered the circles to create the scalloped edge. Mahalo for sharing! Keep um' comin'! Jenn
