A colourful challenge

The Make My Monday challenge is asking for projects that reflect an Indian Summer.  The more colourful, apparently, the better.  And so I began to create.

For my base I used Naturals White followed by Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black and a piece of the lovely but retired Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper.  I decided to stamp the patterned paper with a silhouette from the retired Just Believe stamp set.  It made for an elegant foil for the die-cut butterfly which I added.  Don't you just love the pop of colour that the butterfly gives?

    1. Thank you very much, Jacqueline. I hadn't realized how large that butterfly was but with all the cut-outs, it felt airy enough to work with the card.
