New Color Challenge from My Time Made Easy

Hi everyone! I'm here today with news of another new challenge from My Time Made Easy. Every Sunday, I'll be hostessing this challenge and I'll try to have some really fun colors to work with! I hope to see all of you playing along with me! Here are this week's colors.


I picked these colors from a dp in the October Afternoon Thrift Shop collection. Here's how I used them. My mom's birthday is today and this is her birthday card. I started with an ivory base and added the certainly celery cardstock and dp. On the middle section, I ran a piece of certainly celery through a cuttlebug folder and distressed it a bit with tea dye distress ink. (I also distressed the other layers with this ink.) The scallops were punched with a Martha Stewart punch with red riding hood cardstock. The ribbon is seam binding from Debbie Marcinkiewicz's etsy store.

For the center piece, I used the Framed Elegance cut file and stamped it with riding hood red ink with the frame stamp from Framed Elegance stamp set. The butterfly is from Bold Botanicals and was stamped on the frame with memento rich cocoa ink and once again on a scrap piece of ivory carstock. I colored both with copic markers and then cut one out. The body of the butterfly is adhered to the frame and star dust stickles were added to the wings.

I hope you'll stop by the new MTME blog and play along. There are some prizes to be won if you play all month long and we are looking for a DT for this challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

This is so pretty, girl! That butterfly is the perfect focal point and I adore the slight vintage, yet spring feel to your card.

I love your interpretation of the sketch and the palette you chose is sure to inspire a ton of crafters --> every SUNDAY!! LOL Hope to play along later today or sometime this week.
