Just Rite Friday Challenge#091---Color Challenge

This is a card I made for the challenge this week over at Just Rite Stamps . There's some awesome prizes up for grabs so who knows ....... The colors are greys ,yellow and a neutral . For my card I chose the Authentique 6x6 paper pad called Blissful which has so many beautiful designs and goes so nicely with grey C/S from Bazzile and very vanilla from SU .I stamped my Flourish from JR Elegant Frames stamp set in Versafine Smokey grey and embossed with clear EP, then cut out with Spellbinders Labels 10 die. The sentiment comes from the same set and stamped in Versafine onyx . I then layered it on one of the Cheery Lynn dies Italian doily. Flowers were made using the Spellbinders Rose Creations dies and inked with Mustard Seed DI while still in the die . I used Hug Snug seam binding for my bow . Stick pin made from beads from my stash .  The flourishes in the lower corners was stamped with the stamp from Elegant Frames in Smokey Grey Versafine . This was a fun challenge to do .

All Sorts week #194 Things with wings

I recently saw this doily on so many cards that I just had to buy it . Over the weekend I was playing in my craft room and made this card . Just love how the pink and grey go so well together . I stamped the doily with Versamark and then embossed with detail white embossing powder . I then stamped SU French script in Versafine Smokey Grey over the card front , the doily resisted the ink . I made my butterfly with a Marianne exotic butterfly die cutting it out 3 times and layering them . Added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles followed by Diamond Dust around the edges of the butterfly to give it some sparkle and added pearls to the body of the butterfly  . The grey scalloped panel was cut from a Cricut Cartridge called Elegant Edges .Sentiment was stamped in Smokey Grey on white C/S and attached to the lower left corner with popups.

I'm entering this in a couple of challenges this week
