Just Us Girls #272 - Color Week

Hi everyone!  Are your days getting more and more hectic this week?  I hope you have time to play in this week's Just Us Girls challenge.  Ina has chosen these fabulous colors for our color week challenge. 
 
Here is a close up of the picture and colors.
 
I imagine that these colors would make for a beautiful Christmas card.  But I've done enough of those and needed a break.  I went through my stash of stamps and came across this Modern Basics one from Papertrey Ink.  I looked at some samples on their site of how all these pieces could be used and found one I fell in love with from Betsy Veldman.  She just knows how to put fun colors together!  So I sort of cased her card (well, at least the stamping portion of this card),  I used several of the colors from the challenge and created the background.  Then I took that tide pool ink and colored some white cardstock with it so I had an exact match.  I then die cut the butterfly from it.  That is placed on dimensionals in the center.  I wanted to do something different, so I die cut the bow from white cardstock and added it along the side to make it look like it was actually ribbon tied on.
