CCMC228 Sparkly Butterflies

This week's challenge at Create with Connie & Mary is a color challenge and what cool colors!  Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder and Silver Glimmer Paper.

I'm not normally a fan of Wisteria Wonder, but it goes wonderfully with Baja Breeze and the sparkly Silver Glimmer paper.

I saw a photo of gifts given to some European demos at their recent convention and one of the gifts had these gorgeous little butterflies using the new Elegant Butterfly punch and silver glimmer paper.  So I just had to case the idea for my very CAS card.

The silver glimmer butterfly is stuck onto the card base while the Wisteria Wonder and Baja Breeze butterflies and just stuck in the center with their wings pulled away from the sparkly layer.  Here's a close-up of the butterflies.

Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary and give this color challenge a go.  You can see the variety of cards created by the design team using this color scheme.

Thanks for looking.

I do like the butterflies layered with the Glimmer Paper. I bet the shimmer is wonderful in person. Super job with the colors!

very pretty butterflies! And I'm so glad to see another idea besides snowflakes - that was all I could come up with and the wedding card works perfectly with these colors.
