Brown + 1 Challenge

Just when you thought I was done for night! LOL! No seriously this will be my last post for today cause I've "forgotten" to do some homework for school tomorrow in my eager efforts to allow my mojo to flow! I still have to finish reading one of my young adult lit books so I'll be able to discuss it in class tomorrow. I have a short summary paper due too, but I can work on that between my classes. Yes, I know I'm a serious procrastinator. LOL!

This week's challenge over on Cupcake Craft Challenge was Challenge #31: Brown +1. Our instructions was to use one of the following combos when creating our cards: Brown & Green, Brown & Pink or Brown & Blue. Now I would usually go for the Brown & Pink because those colors just call to me...that is why I tried to choose one of the other combos and opted with Brown & Blue.

This morning I received a fabulous envelope stuffed full of Bella images from my friend Carol AND another one from my friend Diane! I love these ladies!!! I was tickled to find one of my favorite Bellas, Miss Butterflyabella, in Carol's pack of goodies! Yay me! LOL! I decided to use this image for the CCC challenge and colored it accordingly. Then I dug in my papers and found this gorgeous butterfly paper which just happened to be brown and blue! How awesome was that?! I matched it with some blue and brown cardstock and then pulled the card together. It's a bit of an unusual layout, but I really really like it! I finished it off which some brown grosgrain ribbons, a few adhesive gems, the "butterfly wishes" sentiment and then I punched out a brown butterfly. I treated everything with Stickles--Stardust on the outline edges, Cinnamon on the brown butterfly and Waterfall on the blue butterfly--and called it done!

Card Details:
Size: 4.25" x 5.5" (side fold)
Image/Sentiment: Butterflyabella and "butterfly wishes" (stampingbella); Coloring: BIC, "Cool Grey 30%" Prismacolor and "skin white" Copic; Paper: CS-blue (from stash), CS-Brown (Paper Studio), CS-White (GP) and PP-"Butterflies-blue and brown" (Paper Studio); Misc.: brown grosgrain ribbon, mini adhesive gems, butterfly punch, Stickles (listed above) and dimensionals
