Hi all, hope you are having a great Sunday evening.
Just getting this in under the wire;-). I made this card using the colors from Color Throwdown #153, and the sketch from Card Patterns 127 Sketch challange. I will enter it in both challanges. It took me a while to get the colors to work right, but I like the way it finally came together.
I used some SU Old olive DP for the base and the center. I came as close a I could to the crumb cake and pool party from my on hand cardstock, I think it is Bazzil. I used Spellbinders Classic Octagons & Scalloped octagons for my center. I stamped the sentiment and leaves from SU set 'Just Believe' with Old olive ink, and sponged some OO around the die before I removed it. The butterflies are die cut using the SU Beautiful Butterflies embosslit die and I layerd them together and added some stardust stickles on the wings and Basic Gray white pearls to their centers. I cut the flowers with the Marvy medium daisy punch, stacked 3 together and added a white brad to the center and stickles to the edges. The leaf branches and photo corners are also EKS punches. I cut the small daisy border with a EK success border punch intending it to go across the panel, but it just didn't look right, so I put it across the bottom of the back panel. I also added stickles to the center of the flowers. After a few false starts I think it finally came out pretty well. Hope you like!
