365 Days Challenge Day 7

Hello my dear blog followers!

I had stumbled this a website that has a card challenge everyday.(hopefully the page will come up so you can see the challenge.)

This was day 7. Three colors were the challenge. They were a green, purple and turquoise color.

I used Perfect Plum, Certain Celery and Tempting Turquoise along with the polka-a-dot paper in each color. I used a scallop border punch I rarely use and made layers on top of a embossed polka-a-dot Perfect Plum layer. Added a Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery ribbon. The image was done with a set called Pocket Silhouettes. The butterflies were cut out using an embosslets die called Beautiful Wings on the Big Shot machine. Adding tiny pearls to each of the butterfly center and attaching them with glue dots was the finishing touch. All supplies are from Stampin Up.

I can't wait to do tomorrows challenge! Maybe I will put the layers on evenly! hehe Can you tell the image is a bit off when I attached it. Unfortunately I used tacky tape so I couldn't move it to even it out. Uneven or not it was fun to play along. So here's to doing a better job tomorrow! :0)

Take care my dear stamping friends and as always I hope you have time to Stamp!

Till my next post...

    I love how there is so much repetition but it doesn't look like it ... if you know what I mean .... each piece is just gorgeous! Love that stamp you have used for the background .. and those butterflies are too cute!

  5. Shirley, I love this color combination. I don't know that I would think to put them together, but when you see the result, it's beautiful. I worry too about getting layers straight, and you know what I discovered? I'm the only one who sees it. Your card is fabulous!! Good luck on the other challenges.
