Solo Wisteria Butterfly
Over at Just Add Ink, the challenge is to use Wisteria Wonder, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla. In the past, I generally used Crumb Cake only with darker colors, but I'm finding that it is great paired with some of the lighter colors as well--and this is one of them. I stamped my floral butterfly from Stampin' Up!'s Papillon Potpourri set, punched it with the Elegant Butterfly punch, layered that on a wisteria circle textured with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder punched with the 1-3/4" circle punch, layered that on crumb cake 2-3/8" scallop circle, and layered that on a 2-1/2" vanilla circle. Sigh, that was a long description :) I used some polka dot paper in Crumb Cake from the Neutrals Patterns DSP pack and layered that on Vanilla and Wisteria and tied it all up with some Wisteria Ruffled Ribbon. I stamped the greeting from Embellished Events and cut it with the larger banner in the Bitty Banners framelits. My card base is Very Vanilla card stock with some Wisteria Wonder Patterns DSP on it. There are a lot of layers on the card, but I love how they all really come together with the colors. Have you tried a color challenge recently?
