Well hi there!  It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  This time we have some nature-inspired colors for you.

I’ve decided to combine the color challenge with a few other challenges.  The Paper Players challenge is to use at least one butterfly on a clean and simple card.  At Less is More, the challenge is to use three stamps; my three are the butterfly, the wordy sentiment, and the “happy birthday”.  Since I didn’t want the ends of the chocolate brown ribbon to show, I’ve attached the turquoise card front to a blush pink card base.  The butterfly was stamped onto a scrap of white cardstock, colored, and fussy cut.  The left side is attached directly to the card front, but the right side is adhered with dimensional adhesive to add a little visual interest to the card.
