Just Us Girls #241 - Color Challenge and Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  I'm the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls for the color challenge.  I chose kraft, orchid, and white.
 
I really like this combination!  I started by sponging some orchid ink through a stencil for the background.  Then I die cut two butterflies - one solid and one a detailed cut.  The solid one was cut from orchid paper and the detailed one from white card stock.  I ran it through the Xyron machine and covered it with Stickles dry glitter.  The sentiment was stamped with kraft ink.  I embossed the bottom of the kraft card stock with one of those single strip embossing folders.
 
I'm also participating in a birthday blog hop for Sandie from London Times.  Her birthday was yesterday and there's a Linky Tool on this blog if you know Sandie (or not!) and want to link up a birthday card for her.  Happy Birthday Sandie!  I hope you enjoyed your day!
 
I loosely followed this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.

You can see more inspiration from the JUGs DT and our guest designer.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
