just because....

Hello friends!!!  Have a little card today for the current Dynamic Duos challenge.  The layout is based on Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch and boy oh boy did I give myself a challenge when I combined the two!  I spent quite sometime on this card to make the monochromatic color combo with the sketch, but in the end I think I succeeded quite nicely.



 
 
I used a favorite Taylored Expressions set called Make it Amazing.  The set is full of lovely butterfly images and beautiful sentiments.  The other thing I like about the set is that it has a set of matching dies which I used for the card.  Initially I had some patterned paper in the mix, but in the end got rid of it because it just wasn't working for me.   This was one of those cards that as I was putting all of the elements together I wasn't too sure it would work, but once I had the card completed I really liked the overall effect.   Thinking about putting this into one of the Moxie Fab challenges... the asymetrical challenge.  What do you think?    ETA:  Decided to pop this into the above mentioned MF challenge!

Thanks for stopping by....

Me thinks you should enter it in either the focal point or asymmetrical challenge!! Love how you put this together!

I like how you placed all your images and created the focal point Rosemary and balanced your card with the ribbon and button. Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week.

I know I say it often, but your card is just perfect! You combined difficult colours (at least for me) in the most beautiful way :)
