Flutter By Wednesday, Raspberry Suite#14 and SCS241




It's Flutter By Wednesday and this week's challenge is an open one - just include a butterfly or fairy on your card or project. Please link up your card to Mr Linky on Danni's blog so we can all see your creation!
This card came together easily once I decided to combine some challenges. I had originally started a few days ago thinking about Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite challenge which for me was a very hard combination to work with: plum pudding, raspberry fizz, scarlet jewel and vanilla cream. Never in a million years would I have come up with this combination! Thank goodness for this week's sketch on SCS! When I saw it I knew I wanted to use the Inkadinkado Butterfly image (for Flutter By Wednesday) for one panel and it just went from there. I minimized the amount of scarlet jewel on this card and I actually like this combination! I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the plum panel and stamped a bit of the polka dots in Memento Sweet Plum from PTI's Polka Dot Basics on the top image panel. I wanted to play off of the dotted butterfly on the left panel. The sentiment from PTI's Everyday Button Bits was stamped in stamped in raspberry fizz.

Thanks for coming by!
Supplies: Stamps - Inkadinkado, PaperTrey Polka Dot Basics, Everyday Button Bits; Ink - PTI Raspberry Fizz, Memento Sweet Plum; Paper - PaperTrey; Misc - Ribbon, pearl brad, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
