Butterflies and Hexagons

Hello!

Thanks for visiting my little place in blogland :)

I have a card to share with you that I created for this week's CAS challenges over on SCS. We had to use the color combo of melon mambo, pear pizazz, crumb cake and white. When I first saw this challenge I thought......ewwww, cause I just really thought those colors didn't fit together. I really don't like the look of melon mambo against white so I wanted to soften that combo up a bit and this is what I went with....

By placing the crumb cake layer onto the white base....I think I accomplished my "hot pink" fear. :)
I cut the butterflies out after I inked them up with crumb cake and melon mambo inks using the rock and roll technique. These come from the SU stamp set, For All You Do. The sentiment is a MFT set called ~ Blessed Mouse. I love my CM hexagon punch so I decided to punch a few of those in melon mambo and pear pizazz. Then I just finished it off with a few white pearls.

I hope you join us this week with a CAS creation!

I am also entering this card in the following challenge:

Until next time...
Blessings...
