Thinking Of Some More Spring!!

Last night I finished up a card I was working on for three days now. I am finally satisfied with the end result and, I got a few others too out of it that are OK and can live with. This card is for this month's Crate Color Challenge at the Crate Paper blog that I decided to play along with because the colors really intrigued me. Not something I would normally do, and way out of my comfort zone. I was yearning for a good challenge and this is what I came up with.

Here is a look at the color palette I went with-- champagne peach, emerald green, and charchol grey.

and a look at the inspiration wire they always share...

Here are some up close pictures of some of  my card...

This was my butterfly.  I cut two butterflies from ( one from green and other from pink pp).  Used my 5/16" circle punch on the green and layered the green on top of the pink.  Embossed them together (embedded embosssing technique) and covered with Glossy Accents. Finished it off with some faux pearls.

Here's a close-up of my altered corsage pins (which has become my new trademark-- you can find my tutorial in this post).  I used my My Favorite Things, rolled rose Die-namics die.

And here's just a little close up of my bow.

Pretty I like the layered punches too. That color palette would be hard for me!
