you're someone...

Hello friends!!  Here with a little card that I made for two challenges:  ColourQ and CAS Colours and Sketches.   I really like the color combo presented by ColourQ this week so I was definitely determined to get something made before my very busy Easter weekend sets in!


When I saw the sketch put forth by CAS Colours and Sketches this week I thought I would use my Hero Arts Bold Pop Flowers set, but then changed my mind and used another HA set, Antique Flowers and Butterflies.  I stamped the large butterflies using Always Artichoke and Simply Chartreuse (a little gift from my sweet friend, Greta) inks and then die cut them with the matching die.  The middle butterfly was stamped using Pool Party and die cut with its matching die.  The smaller butterflies were stamped using Wisteria Wonder and since I lost their matching die I had to trim them out by hand!  The top of the card stock piece was partially embossed with the Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper EF and then the butterflies attached.  The sentiment is from another Hero Art set called Very Special. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:   Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White; Stamps:  Hero Arts:  Inks:  Stampin Up!, PTI and Memento; Dies:  Hero Arts/Sizzix; EF:  Cuttlebug
