I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and especially Sunday/Father's Day.
We had an extremely relaxing weekend even through it was busy with Taekwondo Belt Ceremony on Saturday. After that, we found sometime to enjoy some music at a Blues Festival. We enjoyed some funnel cake, Mexican and Mediterranean food and cool refreshing drinks.
Win Win!! It was exactly what my hubby wanted to do.
As far as my Dad, I do miss him a lot. They are now living in California and it's hard for us to visit as often as we would like. We do call them and sometimes skype.
LOVE you DAD!!
Today I'm here with another Creative Color Challenge #13 for you all.
Archana wanted to try something different for her team this week. She asked us to come up with a color pallet and challenge. We all happily agreed.
This week Claudia had a great color pallet and challenge for us.
Here is Claudia's color pallet for us:
Vanilla, Mint Green and White
We also had to add a butterflies.
Our sponsor this week is Lacysunshine.
I chose the digi called lupita:
Thank you Lacy Sunshine. I had a hard time choosing. They are all so cute.
Now here is my card:
I trying my very best to add flowers to my cards. I'm not very good at but as do it more I will get it sooner or later.
The base is a 5x5 size card. I'm not sure how I'm going to mail it out but its bigger than that with the butterflies and circle extending out. I used pattern paper from Crate Paper called " Oh Darling". I also use the same paper for the butterflies. I cut out the butterflies with my new Tim Holtz on the edge die called "Butterflight". I have seen other ladies use this die this way so I had to try it out on this card. I then added some white crochet and ribbon trim on the top, below the butterflies. I colored my image with my copics (if you want to know the colors let me know by commenting down below). I cut her out with my new Diemond Dies Nesting Circles die set. I love this set as it has 20 dies total and they perfect for layering and matting. Now for my flower arrangement. I used some crochet doiles from Nica (Simplyshimmeryscraps). I cut out some mint green swirls from Cheery Lynn dies called Fanciful Flourish mini. I cut them up and tucked them here and there. I added some white, pink, and cream flowers that I got from my friend Divine (itsalldivine). Then I added some white ribbon rolled flowers from Michaels. I distress the edges with vintage photo distress ink. Lastly, I add some pearl trim for the antenna for the butterflies.
I truly enjoy making this card and I hope you all like as well. Stop on by Creative Color Challenge's Blog to enter in on the fun. Plus check out the other design team members creations too. They are all amazing.
Have a great Tuesday and the rest of your week.
