Happy Valentine's Day Butterflies

Today's card was inspired by four different Blog Challenges.....Color Throwdown, Sunday Stamps, Colour Me, and the Card Concept.


For Color Throwdown we were asked to use Baked Brown Sugar, Regal Rose and Sky Blue. While I had the last two, I substituted Desert Sand for the Baked Brown Sugar.



For Colour Me we were given freedom with our chosen colors, however they did ask that we use 5 colors. So I added Daffodil Delight and Pear. I love the way these colors all came together.

For Sunday Stamps they provided the card sketch. I pretty much followed that to the letter.

For Card Concept we were asked to use Texture on the card. I did so by using textured cardstock and by embossing the heart and the white background paper. Also I used embosslits for the butterflies. So I have lots of texture going on here as well.
This ended up being a very simple card to put together and it would be so easy to change up the color combinations and create several of these in no time flat. It was a great way to use up some of my scraps as well.


I hope you enjoyed this card and until the next time, Happy Paper Crafting!
