Good evening folks ......I hope that you all have had a really great week  I know that I have. Have I ever mentioned that  I love the cold!!!! We have snow on the mountain and its been sooooo cold and I LOVE IT!!! I wish that it actually would snow in my backyard but living so close to the beach I am not sure if it will.
The challenge this week was so much fun I really enjoyed working with these colours and Inspirational photo :).
Now I know that the bedspread is more of a pinky red colour (rose red)  but... I am in love with Riding Hood Red at the moment and had to use it.
The other colours that I brought into the card were Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery.
Stamps sets used were level one hostess stamp set " Live Like You Mean It" the little butterfly was out of the set "Garden Whimsy".
I paper tolled out the butterfly making the wings look real and sewed some coordinating Designer Buttons (bouquet) as part of the flowers,
Well that's about it I am out tonight at a pot luck tea, looking forward to seeing every ones challenge cards this week :)

This is just simply stunning Amy! I love it. When completing mine I was thinking the butterfly from Garden Whimsy would be perfect. Well Done!!

Beautiful card for the challenge - you DT girls are certainly giving us some fabulous inspiration!!

Cindy Major said...

This card is fabulous! I love the colours you picked (Baja Breeze was a nice choice!), the delicate flowers and the touch of buttons. Now I almost wish I hadn't given this hostess stamp set away... (especially without ever even inking it first!)

Have a great weekend!

P.S. I think it's funny that you are hoping for snow and cold - we are desperately wishing for the summer sun to get out here!

Now I must confess that the two stamp sets you've used do absolutely nothing for me, but you've just make this work for me!!! Clever girl!! Great inspiration card.

Amy, I love your card! It is just so very pretty and using those two ribbons together worked very well! I will have to have second thoughts about that hostess set now I have seen it used so nicely!

Whoa, this is BEAUTIFUL, Amy. Have to say that stamp set didn't appeal to me at all, but what you've created is gorgeous (might just have to add it to my loooong list!).
