Soft Colours for Spring

Ohhhh I was so pleased to see that I have 2 new followers that signed up this weekend. Thanks so much for joining.

I am going to have to set aside some goodies for a draw when I reach the 100th follower.

This card was started for a colour challenge at Color Throwdown and then I will also add it to Make it Monday as we are able to post anything we have made that we would like to share to inspire others.

I thought of spring or summer when I saw the list of colours we had to work with soooo this is what I came up with.

Hope you like it enough to give me a little sugar by adding a comment ....or better yet...why not click on follow to come and follow me.

The colours required to work with were Baja Breeze So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.

I used the Pear Pizzazz for the card base then the fist mat is So Saffron. I then used Very Vanilla to emboss using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then sponged some Early Expresso to highlight the embossed parts.

The only Baja Breeze on this card is the small blue flowers.

I stamped the butterfly from the SU set called Elements of Style with Early Expresso and cut it out then used demensionals to pop it up.

Let me know what you think.
