Inkspirations Colour Challenge #76

Verve

Keesh keeps coming up with wonderful colour combinations and this one is no exception.  I combined it with this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and opted for the round card - can you say twist my rubber arm LOL!

I am totally head over heels in love with Echo Park's new Dots and Stripes designer paper.  So much so that I'm heading back to the LSS I got it from to get some more - happy sigh...hee, hee :)    It is a bit darker that Peach Parfait, but in the same colour family so I fudged it because I just couldn't pass up using it! 

I used Labels 16 as the square and filled it with Verve's Flutterby and Elegant Leaf dies.  A button with some twine finished off the butterfly nicely and a sentiment with a touch of bling finished off the card.  For some reason this card just makes me smile. 

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.

this makes me smile too! I love me some bold colour like that and the sweet butterfly. Happy Anniversary for tomorrow :) How did you celebrate? I giggled at your "zed" comment. I remember you telling me that and I am so used to saying "zed" and spelling things O"U"R way that I don't notice :) The summer weather has left and we are having cooler temps...I have to make a bunch of gift cards for my sis and start clearing out the kitchen. Hope your weekend has been fabulous :)
