A Splash of Colour

Hi everyone,


Just a quick card I wanted to share with you. 


I have used the current colour challenge at The Play Date Cafe , Black and White with a splash of Mustard – interesting don’t you think?


I was inspired by the current challenge at CASE Study Challenges for the layout and the butterflies - you can see the challenge here.


I have used Basic Black for the base of my card, added a layer of Whisper White card stock and some of the Speciality DSP Mocha Morning.


I created a tag and then created a border on the bottom with the Eyelet Boarder Punch.  My splash of colour is More Mustard and  I have used a dauber to add some ink to the edges of the tag.


I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and created some butterflies in Basic Black, More Mustard and Whisper White.  I created three butterflies, layered them together using the three colours and added some ‘bling’ to the top layer.


The top of the tag has some ribbon- Basic Black Grosgrain and Whisper White Taffeta.  The sentiment is from the Tagtastic Hostess set.


The Tag, sentiment and butterflies were added to the card using dimensionals.


Here is my card….








Stamp set: Tagtastic Hostess Set

Card: Basic Black, More Mustard, Whisper White

I am happy with the card, it looks a little elegant – maybe its the black flocking on the paper?  LOL
