Butterflies, Flowers and Dots Oh My


This is Verve's last September challenge and I was in the mood for some bold colours today so this inspiration picture was perfect :)  In addition, I found some ribbon during one of my Micheal's ribbon bin diving adventures that was a perfect match so I was good to go! 

I succumbed to not only one dotted embossing folder but two!  Swiss Dots, my go to embossing folder, and Seeing Spots the large circle embossing folder.  Yes.....my addiction is getting worse LOL!  Not only that, but I also have butterflies and flowers (in the ribbon) on the card.  Happy sigh.....LOL!   Now the ever present waiting and hoping to see your name selected as the winner of the entire next Verve release :)

In the mean time, I get to enjoy wearing my ColorQueen crown for the week as this card was selected as last week's ColorQ winner.  My day just keeps getting better :)

Back tomorrow with my Color Dare card.  I'm much happier with this week's card as I'm still suffering from the butt kicking last week's colours gave me LOL!  Enjoy your day :)

Paper:  Going Grey, Basic Black, Real Red

Oh my goodness, that ribbon is so perfect for this card! Butterflies and flower ribbon. My heart is happy as well. They are both such happy images. I really need to get my hands on that seeing spots embossing folder. I am loving it on your card!

Congrats on your ColorQ recognition!
