Make it Monday Challenge #64

     Here is a card I made for the Make it Monday #64 Challlenge over on Capture the Moment , Nichole Heady's Blog for Papertrey Ink. The challenge this week was to create a project using color inpiration. I used this photo from Nichole's Blog as my inspiration.
     I love the vintage feel of this photo and the soft colors. So here is the card I created using this as my starting point.
       I used Berry Sorbet cardstock as my cardbase, then added this very pretty vintage looking patterned paper from Echo Parks-This & That collection, as my next layer. I die cut three butterflies using Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores, and Aqua Mist cardstock and my die from the Beautiful Butterfly die set. I stamped each butterfly with the Gingham background stamp using versamark ink, then added clear embossing powder and heat embossed them, it added a nice dimension of color to the Butterflies!! I added grosgrain ribbon down the middle of the card in Berry Sorbet and Aqua Mist, then mounted my butterflies on top using foam squares. I added Melissa Frances pearls down the centers of each butterfly, for thier bodies, a little bakers twing and button twine, a Hawaiian shores button, then I stamped my sentiment  from the Beautiful Butterfly stamp set in Dark Chocolate ink. You can find all my Papertrey ink supplies by shopping Here . Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day, and tomorrow is NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY!! Have fun everyone.
