First colour challenge of 2015

Good morning friends,

So we have our first colour challenge at The Outlawz for this year and it is an old favourite...an inspirational photo, 3 colours and a twist, so I do hope you will come and join in the fun.

Laurian has chosen this week's photo and colours and the DT have made some amazing cards, using images from our sponsor Stitchy Bear images

This is my card.


Pink cardstock, matted a white card which I had run through the CB with a butterfly embossing folder. I haven't used this one for a long time. (trying to use at least I item each week from 'the archives'

Image - Floral frame 2, and you can find it HERE. I coloured with Distress Inkpads, cut it with an oval die and framed it with scalloped die.

3 butterflies punched with a Nellie Snellen punch and added pearls.

Sentiment..used peeloffs

Finished off with a bow.

I will enter some challenges:
Craft-Dee Bowz...Anything goes with a handmade bow
Crafting from the Heart #41...Anything goes
Imagination Crafts...Anything goes
Love to Create #148...Anything goes
Love to Scrap challenge #45...use at least one item starting with the letters L,T,S,C or B (I used the B..butterflies, bow)

Wishing you a great week. My thoughts are with the people experiencing the horrific bush fires in Australia. I hope you are all safe.
 Also thinking of those folks snowed in by the heavy falls in Canada and elsewhere.
Take care wherever you are. See you soon and thanks for popping in. I love your visits.
Love Ursula
