colourQ #125

Hi crafty friends! You’re just in time to discover this week’s colourQ challenge! I’ll admit, it was definitely a challenge for me! The colors are all so pretty, but I think I got thrown by the Basic Gray!

The border strip on my card is made of some funky netted ribbon that I found at the local stamp store, and I folded it over a few times to make the border. Now that I think about it, it probably would have looked fine just stretched across the bottom part where I placed the sentiment. I just didn’t realize how thick it would actually be!

The rest of the card is pretty simple. I embossed the top part and then layered three punched out butterfly silhouettes over the squares of matching card stock.  The sentiment was stamped, matted on a scrap of grey paper and I cut a thinner strip of matching paper to go underneath to make a banner.

Other supplies: sentiment stamp (Stampin’ Up!), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), embossing folder (Sizzix), card stock (Stampin’ Up!), ribbon (May Arts), striped paper (Echo Park Dots & Stripes).

 To recap, here are our colors for this week’s challenge!
