Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11


Hi!
Okay when I saw these colours I said ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! A challenge is a challenge so here's my card. I can't tell you how many times I reached for white card stock!!!
MUST_ HAVE_ WHITE!!!!!! ;)
Anyways, I took quick photos this morning.......the first one is in my daughter's bedroom and the second is outside..............where I came into some furry difficulty as you can see for yourself!! My nephews and nieces from Canada named him Max........he's sooo darn sweet but I think we should have called him Curious George!!
.....after a few unsuccessful shots I finally got this one! There is a slight difference in the colours. I like the photo I took outside better.


Anyways for this card I used my Cuddlebug Swiss Dots folder, and I just had to use my lovely Labels 1 Nest. (I got it in the mail yesterday!!). I drew the butterflies and then cut them out. On the bigger butterfly I used one of PTI's Guide Lines Two stamps......and I used Versamark's ink in Dazzle. My sister-in-law brought me some craft goodies from Canada which includes the red flowers on this card. The brad is from Basic Grey................AND the sentiment which I stamped using Chalk Ink in black is PTI's Handwritten Notes that I won on Betsy Veldman's challenge......here's my card that I made for that challenge! I LOVE Betsy!!!
That's it for me!! Lots to do today so I better get started!
Have a great day!
Pin It!

PRetty Jane! Love all the different textures and subtle patterns you used but still kept it clean and simple. And what beautiful hand drawn butterflies!

Maureen P said...

This is fabulous! LOL, I was screaming the same thing...white! I need white! At least cream or something!

Rose said...

This is GORGEOUS, Jane! Love that bold and bright butterfly - way to go pure on the colors in the challenge and NOT USE WHITE! As you saw in my card, I had to throw some in ;)

Beautiful! I love how you used the colors. I struggled with this one but finally came up with something that I will post tomorrow! I love love love those big butterfles!!

Elise said...

You're hilarious! I LOVE YOUR CAT! If it weren't for that pesky white, he could have gone just fine with your card! Tee hee I REALLY struggled with the "white" conundrum myself! Doh! It's gooooood to be challenged, though, huh!?! You made a WONDERFUL card and if I didn't read your post, I would have thought it came VERY easily! Fantastic work!

Janelle said...

Great card. Love the butterfly. I had similar trials trying to get a good photo of my card (minus the kitty -- but if I'd gone outside it would've been a dog for sure!).

Kelly Booth said...

So Pretty Jane....This was a tough one for me!

Winter said...

So pretty! I love the big butterfly!

Kathleen said...

I love your take on this challenge and what a challenge it was too!!! I went for white so many times too but I'm glad we both didn't - your card is beautiful! Love those butterflies!

Love your butterfly, Cute card

Karen said...

Isn't amazing how the colors change from inside to an outside photograph?! I got a giggle from your kittty. Everytime I try to photograph anything outside (which is where I go most of the time), if I try to shoot it on the deck, suddenly my kitties are rubbing on me, the camera, and of course, my paper crafts!! Often, I end up on a low fence. :> Your card came out really well! I love all the subtle textures and prints that make for a fab clean card! :>

Kristina said...

You did fabulously with this challenge! Nice, clean layers, and you can't go wrong with a big butterfly! Love the flowers in the middle of the butterfly, too!

Sue Pardue said...

Beautiful card Jane. I love the butterflies! You did a great job drawing them yourself.

Yeah,
I say,why buy a cutting machine and die when you can just cut out a butterfly freehand.

Congrats for being in the Spotlight! I've been away for a week so I missed the whole challenge. I love your card! The Spotlight was much deserved!

Rose said...

Congrats Jane! You totally deserve it - this card is awesome ;)

Kelley Eubanks said...

Congratulations Jane... this card is awesome... it deserves to be in the top picks!!

sarahmartina said...

Hey Jane! Congrats on being one of Dawn's top picks! I LOVE taking pics of my cards outside too! The best light is mid afternoon for me. Which means I can't wait until the last minute to finish my cards. I have a lightbox, but the natural light is just perfect IMO. :-)
