Colour Create's 50th Challenge !!

Another fortnight has sped by and I'm here with my card for Colour Create's 50th challenge!!!  Woohoo, isn't that  Golden or something!!  Loved all the fabulous entries last week for Janiel's challenge - so many gorgeous cards!!

This week, our challenge has been set by the lovely Victoria who has chosen this picture as your starting point.

Specifically, the colours are Hot Pink, Warm Orange and Saffron with the optional extra of butterflies.  Victoria is also sponsoring this week's challenge and has a pile of Stampin Up goodies for one lucky person!!! 
I made an easel card for the challenge and while I loved using these colours, I feel my card is a little busy!!!  Love this little Ketto image from Stampin Bella which is coloured with Promarkers.  The butterfly papers are from DCWV Garden Party stack and the pink circle paper is Basic Grey.  The gerbera type flowers are from my local £1 shop and the sentiment is Hero Arts.
 You can just see here too that I punched out one of the butterflies from the paper using the large Martha Stewart punch.

The rest of the Colour Create DT have made some truly glorious cards and makes so hop on over and feast your eyes!!  Hope to see you joining in over the next two weeks too!!

The orange worked perfectly after all Julie! Just goes to show. This is a really lovely easel card. It was looking pretty darn sweet when you left me on Saturday but all of the added embellishments have notched up extra points on the wowometer! Love Lesley

Hi Julie,

Love your gorgeous Butterfly paper! The Ketto image is really cute and works so well with those flower embellishments :) Great ideas to use the Butterfly Punch to punch the butterfly from the DSP!

This is sooooo super cute, Julie! I love the pretty colours and the butterfly paper! The Ketto girlie is so cute and coloured beautifully...I really need to use all the Ketto stamps that I have bought....shame! I love that the pretty flowers look like the one the Ketto Girl has in her hand! Great card!

Hi Julie! It was such a lovely surprise to see you today, you really brightened my day no end and I only wish we'd a bit longer to chat, I know how it is when you're on a timer with the hubby though LOL! Your card is gorgeous, I love the busy look of it, it just says summer to me which is all full of colour and life just like your card. Such a sweet Stamping Bella too and gorgeous colouring and I love how you punched out one of the butterflies. Enjoy the rest of your kid free weekend :D, Chris xxx
