What about these colors?

Hey everybody! I hope you're all having a great week.

I'm behind on my card challenges! This card follows a sketch from Ravengirl over on SCS. She's this week's Featured Stamper Congrats Toni!!!

This card also goes along with this week's ColourQ challenge #43.

Now I would have never, ever put these colors together, okay, yes I would have put everything but the bermuda bay (not one of my faves) together. Thanks ColourQ for helping me step outside my box!

Here's the card I came up with...

Supplies:
Card stock: bermuda bay (retired), peach parfait, early espresso, old olive, white
Ink: old olive, pumpkin pie
Stamps: Sanded, Silhouette Sentiments
Accessories: Big Shot machine, beautiful wings embosslit, paper trimmer, score blade, SU! bright collection button, linen thread, half pearls, circle punches


Can you tell I used my linen thread to create the middle butterflies antennas? It's hard to see up against the sanded b/g.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until next time...
Blessings...
