Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 68

Hi bloggies! Before I introduce Act 68 for the Curtain Call Color Challenge, I would like to thank everyone who has left sweet words on my posts lately. Everyone has been so nice and encouraging. I'm really glad I can bring inspiration to all my bloggie friends. Thanks for believing in me! ;) I can't believe I'm a part of these wonderful design teams. And I'm so glad to have gotten to know so many wonderful women here in our little crafty world. :) Sorry I haven't been posting as often as I usually do. I've been a bit busy making my cards for my DT spots and trying to send in some for publication as well. I'll try to post at least one every other day if not one everyday. :)

Now onto our challenge! This week's inspiration is absolutely stunning. I had to make my card over and over again because I wasn't satisfied that I was giving this challenge credit!!! You'll see what I's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 68.

Here's my take on the challenge. When I saw this color combination, I couldn't stop myself from picking out Love Lives Here by Papertrey Ink. I made the central panel first. When I was happy with what I had made, I couldn't decide what the main background would be. It took me 2 cards before I finally came up with this one. I had to run the butterfly die so many times through my Cuttlebug...I think he's so tired the poor thing is probably asleep right now. Haha! I concentrated on the white and soft pink, and added just a pop of green and bright pink. I hope you like this was such a struggle!!! :) Thanks for stopping by! we have a very, very, very talented lady as our guest designer this month!!! Yay!!! :)
