I finally managed to get back here.  I don’t know where this last weekend has gone.  I wanted to show you another card we did last week at our stamping get together.  This one was for the sketch challenge at stamping411 here.

We added a colour challenge to it just to make it interesting!!!

The colours were REAL RED, CHERRY COBBLER, CRUMB CAKE, VERY VANILLA, WHISPER WHITE.  I really wasn’t sure how I was going to put Vanilla and White together.  One thing I have come to realise when there are lots of colours in a challenge is to just add a subtle touch of a colour.  Otherwise, it can get a bit overwhelming.  Here is the card I created.

I used the Crumb Cake for the base and the mat pieces.  I ran the Cherry Cobbler card through the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet folder. (Must add that to my wish list!!!). I borrowed “Priceless” set from Leonie and stamped the swirls in Crumb Cake onto Whisper White and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  I stamped up 2 butterflies in Cherry Cobbler and 1 in Real Red and cut them out and raised them with mounting tape.   You can’t see in the photo but I added some bling to the butterflies with the 2 way glue and Dazzling Diamonds.  It makes them sparkle! 🙂

For the token Very Vanilla I used a piece of the Vanilla Neutrals DSP pack and sponged that in Crumb Cake and matted it onto a Crumb Cake piece.  I used some Kraft Taffeta ribbon (now retired).  The greeting is from Pocket Silhouettes and stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  So, I got a touch of Vanilla and Real Red in there.  It works!!!!!

I have another challenge card to show you.  I will leave that till next time.  Have a Happy Day 🙂
