Celebrate Card

I might just have to call this card one of my favorites! I combined Kelly Jo's Color Chef Challenge and Amy R's Sketch to create it. Honestly, I was very challenged by this color combo at first. I hated it (no offense, Kelly Jo!!).

One thing about Sketches is that I really have to be able to envision what I'm going to do with it before I even start... otherwise I end up with a lot of wasted paper! So I tend to just stare at the sketch for a couple minutes and envision which stamp set would go best with the style and placement of the Sketch. Now, with color challenges I usually end up having to make my own background or patterned paper for the project. That is where CTMH's Background stamps come in very handy (i.e. Argyle Backgrounds D1325, Brilliant Backgrounds D1251, Intrinsic Backgrounds D1335, or Spot On Backgrounds D1280 -- used here).


COLORS: Cranberry, Honey, Black & White


Spot On Backgrounds D1280
Butterfly Wings D1341
Say It In Style D1283

Embellishments: Misc. Flower, White Ribbon and Brads -- the Butterfly is up on Foam Squares
