CCMC252 - Color Challenge and Chic Challenges Sketch 4 – CC-04

Hi Stampers,

Today's card was inspired by the color combination over at Create with Connie and Mary and the sketch comes from Chic Challenges.

2013 Thursday Challenges-015
Chic Challenges CC-04

I love the softness feel of the color combination.  When I saw the sketch I thought of the Swallowtail stamp because there is so much detail on the butterfly that you really don't need to use the whole image.  It's just as beautiful with a partial image.

What do you think about the partial butterfly image?

  6. You're right.. even a partial image of this butterfly is beautiful and it works great with this sketch and color scheme! Love the accent of the paper piercing! Thanks for joining us this week for the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.

  7. I really like the way you used just part of the image of the butterfly. It is rather overwhelming as a whole stamp! A very nice card for any occasion! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary color challenge this week!
