CIC - Colours ....

... Morning!  It's time for our new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations - CIC#350.  As always our colours are taken from our fabulous cupcake photo.  Don't they look just yummy? Our colours are light and bright and perfect for a spring card - Chartreuse, petal and goldenrod.  Here's my card:

Stamps: DRS Designs Digi - Leaf Butterfly Spray; Uniko - Some Bunny, I Love Tea
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Pear Pizzazz; Cuttlebug EF - D'Vine Swirls; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear


My layout is based on this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#226.  I'm also submitting to the new Time Out Challenge - TOC#51, as their theme is Spring/Easter and I've made an Easter card. I received this beautiful digital image from DRS Designs which I printed on white card. I coloured it with Copic markers and then carefully cut it out. As I'd already printed a second image, I decided to layer the butterflies for some depth.  I added sparkle to the butterflies and flower buds with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I made the base from green card and embossed the white panel with elegant swirls. I stamped a simple greeting on the horizontal border.  On the inside I stamped a couple of pretty flowers at the corners.

I've taken a close up photo of the butterflies so that you can see the dimension as well as the pretty sparkle:

Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs, who kindly provided me with this pretty digital image.  The winner of the challenge will receive a $10 Gift Certificate for use in the DRS shop.  Have fun!
