Colour Dare

The Colour Dare Challenge this week is to use:

Poppy Parade

So Saffron

Very Vanilla

I love the Poppy Parade Colour and went to work creating my card!!  The So Saffron DSP is from last year's Sweet Pea pack.  I used my embossing folder with the Big Shot to created the textured background and used the big shot with my butterfly embosslit to create the little butterflies.  I added some ribbon and some pearls, I am really happy with how this turned out!!  I hope you like it too!!

Thanks for stopping by!
