Color Challenge...

I love a good color challenge  and The Play Date Cafe always has one that can get my creative juices flowing.   For this project I started with the avocado green card base.  I affixed a light blue panel to the front and cut out some fun flourishes in the green with my silhouette.  I glued the flourishes to the blue panel and die cut a matching butterfly which I also embossed with flourishes using my Big Shot and a cuttlebug embossing folder.  Next I dug out my nestabilities label 1dies and  some grey cardstock and cut a sweet little shape to build upon. The edges of the shape I inked with SU Always Artichoke ink.   I punched out some paper flowers with a 'Picture Punch' and added green pearls for the centers.  I also added green pearls for the body of the butterfly.  I glued the flowers to the grey die cut and added a blue chiffon ribbon and attached this to the card with dimensional adhesives. The sentiment is stamped on grey cardstock with edges inked with the SU Artichoke and attached with dimensional adhesives.

Here is their lovely color story for this challenge.
