I paired this week's colours with last week's Card Pattern's sketch. I'm not sold on the card, but think it may have to do with the fact I had to use Pretty in Pink instead of Pink Pirouette as I didn't have any and the pink I used was a bit too strong for this colour combo. That will teach me not to have all the colours in stock LOL!
I went with another non-Christmas card, and since I haven't used my butterfly die for some time, out it came (still madly addicted to this die!). The pink butterfly has a double pattern on it as I tried one embossing folder and didn't like it so ran it through the Swiss Dots one to match the vanilla dotted panel and thus the double pattern. Thought the look was unique so kept it :)
The card seemed a bit "blah" to me, so I added a few black accents to perk things up a bit and it's sitting a bit better with me now :)
