Wing & bling !!!

Yea I finally got a minute to play along with the friday mashup. It's challenge 19 and Kasey is going for the bling .This time we're mashing up a color combo and butterflies and bling

The colors given to us are Marina Mist and Perfect Plum. Then we choose one more color and a neutral. I'm going with Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake. For the Butterflies I picked my favorite Beautiful Wings and my bling is clear Rhinestone. 

I used the large Coluzzle Circle and cut to half circles. Then used the scallop trim border on the pear pizzazz and found a piece of satin ribbon that match up pretty good.  The flowers are from the Still Life Stem set and I colored them with ink and a blender pen.I didn't think the rhinestones on the butterflies were enough bling so I added a little glitter. Wish I wouldn't have done that. 

It still needed something so I used Perfect plum ink and the Canvas background stamp.. I think that fixes it.
Well I hope you like my card. Can't wait to see what all of you come up with.

Hi Karen, this is really pretty, I like your colour combo, adding crumb cake as your neutral puts a whole new twist to the colours. Lovely background. I agree with you that sizzlit die is my favourite too.

Thanks for plaing along with us at the Friday Mashup again.
