Butterfly Basics | Warm Pink

I am very excited to show of what I have created with new bundle that arrived yesterday - Butterfly Basics, I am loving it!

I have taken inspiration from 2 challenges for today's card:

I did my weekly visit to my favourite Challenge's; Global Design Projects "Case the Designer" is an awesome challenge as you can take inspiration from any element on the card - theme, layout, colours or stampset.  I just loved the layout and layers in Kylie Bertucci's card, and I couldn't go past Blushing Bride at StampInkPaper - so I combined both challenges for my card.

I tend to like cool pinks, so the use of Early Espresso and Gold with Blushing Bride took me away from my natural colour combos - I love where SIP took me with this challenge.  

Technique & Colours:
I stamped off Early Espresso so that it wasn't overpowering the delicate Blushing Bride, and brightened the card by using Very Vanilla as a base for the lovely layers and focal sentiment from Kylie's card - I just love the layers and combination of rectangles and sentiment circle.

I double stamped the flower using a stamp-a-ma-jig as I wasn't happy with it in just Blushing Bride, I really happy with the double stamping effect.

I just couldn't resist adding the butterfly - I double cut and layered to give a little more impact with the Gold embossed sentiment, the Gold Cord Trim reminded of little swirls as the butterfly go to "send wishes your way" 

I hope you have liked my card today, I love reading your comments, til next time
