January 30th

Hi everyone,
Today I have challenge cards 34 and 35. I did this first one last night during that exciting pro bowl game. What are those guys afraid to get hurt or something. Talk about boring....Any way for this card I used the Simply Stamping Challenge. It's a great color combo.

I'm working on Wedding samples for another week. I thought these colors would be great for a late fall wedding. This card is a 5 x 7 tri fold card. With it I also made the response card and two favors. My card stocks, embossing folder, sentiment stamp and label punch are all from Stampin' Up. The flowers are from Inkadinkado. 

I punched out three labels. One from Very vanilla, one from River rock, and one from Early espresso. I cut two of them in half and layered them behind the vanilla one just to give it more color. My flowers are stamped in Early espresso and water colored with Not quite navy and River rock. I carried the flowers to the inside as well as onto the label. A velcro dot holds the card close. Here is a picture of the rest of the sample pieces.

Now for Challenge 35.
This one is for the gals over at The Paper Lovin' Gals. This picture is so pretty.

 It made me thing of my butterfly bush when it's in bloom. So I created a butterfly bush using the Petal prints set and doing a little water coloring

The colors I used are Almost Amethyst, Brocade Blue, and Certainy Celery. My sentiment is from the Upsy Daisy set. The butterflies were die cut with the Beautiful wings Embosslits die and I used pearls to make their  bodies.
I sure hope you like my cards and I thank you for stopping by. Be sure to stop back again.

You are right, these colours would be lovely for a wintery wedding. I love the wedding stationary, very simple but pretty, anyone who knows will know how much I struggle with simple cards so I'm always jealous when others can do it so well.
Thansk for joining us this week at Simply Stampin'.
