Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 48

Hi everyone! It's that time of the week again! Stacey has a new and fun color combination waiting for you over at Stacey's Stamping Stage. This week's color combination actually reminded me of Halloween. But I decided not to go in that direction and challenged myself to do something else. Before I show you, here's the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 48.

Isn't this color combination just yummy?! This is certainly a challenge! As I was saying, I challenged myself to make another card aside from a Halloween card which was what I was thinking of doing in the beginning. Here's my card!

I have been wanting to use this butterfly stamp for quite some time now. For some reason, in my Butterfly Dreams stamp set from PTI, I only use one kind of butterfly. I was thinking that this butterfly was too pretty not to use. And it would look really beautiful in purple! This is how I started my card! From that I kept on building on it...until I came up with this! :)

I really love this frame. I think I've used it in several of my cards now. I used a label die under it and embossed it with dots just to add dimension. And there in the background...YES it's En Francais again! I told you that I would using more of it. :) Isn't it just a lovely stamp? And HUGE too! Did you notice that my pictures are a little better this time around? Hee! I took some pictures near the window when it was still bright. I usually do my crafting at night and so I end up using artificial lighting when taking my pictures. But natural light looks sooo much BETTER!!! :)

Cardstock - vintage cream (PTI), green (Bazzill)
Stamps - Beautiful Blooms 2, Butterfly Dreams, Mega Mixed Messages (PTI), En Francais (SU)
Others - ribbon (Offray), twine (DMC), embossing folder (Provo Craft), labels (Spellbinders)
