This week we have a colour challenge over at Our Creative Corner - a wonderfully colourful palette that reminds me so much of spring. Pinks and fresh green coordinated with black and white - I couldn't resist making this sweet little shaped card.
I started by cutting two shapes from black cardstock with my cuttlebug using a flourish frame by spellbinders and joined them at the edge to form a card base. I then cut a third flourish frame slightly smaller than the first two in white cardstock and added my pink colour using a soft pink shade of ink. Over that I stamped the polka dot image in a shade of light red to match the palette and then distressed this layer using white embossing powder to give that gorgeous shabby chic look, and adhered this to my card base.
I then cut my butterfly shape from white cardstock again using a die and my cuttlebug and coloured this image with a fresh green ink, distressing the edges with black. I layered the butterfly onto my card curling back the wings to give dimension and added some tiny white rosebuds and a lime green rose to the centre for some added interest, along with a piece of green florists wire that I bent into a tendril shape.
Lastly I punched a hole into the side of my card and threaded a coordinating pale pink taffeta ribbon tied into a nice fat bow and added my sentiment - simply XOX
Here is the colour palette for this week:
