Pretty Palette #14

Happy Sunday and Happy Father's Day! I hope you are spending it with your loved ones! We have a new Pretty Palette color challenge from My Time Made Easy! Some of my favorite colors!
I love brown with any color, especially pink! I chose to use this week's Pretty Patterns sketch from MTME. It was a great one that allowed me to use these colors so nicely! I punched squares from dp in rose red, pink pirouette, and chocolate brown from SU (retired papers) with at 1 1/4" punch and layered them on a 3 3/4" piece of cardstock. Then I ran it through a SU embossing the look! Then I layered it on a piece of rose red dp and added the ribbon. The butterfly is from Bold Botanicals. I used the digi form and added the challenge colors in GIMP. I printed it twice, cut and embossed one with a nestie and cut the other and layered it on top for some dimension.
You can see that the butterfly looks like it's going to take flight! I added star dust stickles on the wings for some sparkle.

You can get more inspiration on the MTME blog. The girls did a fab job with the colors!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Sunday!

Hi Lisa ~ This card is fabulous...I was going to ask where you got that great embossed look on the squares when I saw that you got it from SU...Oh the things I can think of to use that embossing for...Beautiful!

Love the quilted look of this and the "double" butterfly is wonderful!

Wayyy cute card! Love the embossing - I learned how to do that type of embossing (several different dp's at once) with my SU group recently. Love how it turned out.

Thanks for incorporating your dt card for the pretty palette along with our pretty patterns challenge. See you on the MTME blog again soon!
