A Color Challenge and a Sketch!

Happy Monday Stampers! Hope you had a terrific weekend!

Today's card is another combination of challenges. I took Taylor's Cupcake Challenge Sketch and Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge and put them together to create a card I am not too crazy about but it's Monday and it was still pretty early when I started.

I started with a Sahara Sand Base and added a panel of the Walk in the Park DSP from the Occasions Mini-I love this paper and you can get it FREE when you buy three packs of DSP through the end of May! I added a Whisper White Scallop Circle punched with the Sizzix Bigz Scallop Circles #2 Die, a strip of More Mustard and a piece of So Saffron punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. I used my 1/4" Circle Punch (retired) to punch mini circles in So Saffron, Sahara Sand and Baja Breeze to add to my More Mustard strip and used my White Gel Pen to add doodle dots to them and the scallops.
I used my new Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix Bigz Die to die cut a butterfly in Baja Breeze and another smaller one in the Walk in the Park DSP and layered them together. The flower is from the Daisies #2 Sizzix Bigz Die and is cut with Baja Breeze and So Saffron with a More Mustard center. The sentiment is stamped in Baja Breeze and is from the Great Friend set (love it!!). The final touch was to go around the littler butterfly with my 2-Way Glue Pen and add some Dazzling Diamonds for some shimmer!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a terrific day!
