I quite often use card sketches to help me make a card but have never used a colour challenge, so this week I decided to use the colour inspiration from Clearly Besotted.
Part of the challenge you have to use at least one of their products. I went with the Butterfly wishes additions and stamped them onto kraft card.
I decided to use the embossing folder, Sizzix leaves 3, that I won recently as I thought it went well with the theme and adds some texture to the background.
When it came to the colours, I found it slightly difficult as most of my patterned paper is very bright and colourful but managed to find some in the Crate Paper Story Teller paper pad.
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Butterfly wishes additions and Amy R It's your birthday | Paper - Crate Paper Story Teller | Border punch - Martha Stewart doily lace | Clearly Besotted Butterfly wishes dies | Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch | Spellbinders Nestabilities label one | Wooden stars - Ebay | Embossing folder - Sizzix leaves 3 | Sequins - Hobbycraft | Stickles star dust.
This is the colour palette.
I had great fun with card and hope to do more of these challenges in the future.
