Hello - Color Dare #298

Love this color combination at ColorMyHeart Color Dare this week … my first thought was flowers but when I found this embossed floral background in my stash I thought it would make a nice backing for a butterfly die I hadn't yet used.  Started first with a die cut in Linen, then added a New England Ivy for the stem flair and shadow and cut one more die in Blossom for the butterflies.  I often do piecing of dies and The Outlawz Twisted Thursday "Paper Piecing" was another challenge this card could be entered in.   

Please hop on by and see the inspiration the Design Team members have created and join us in this new color challenge #298 at Color Dare 

AND DON'T FORGET Double Trouble is still partnering with Color Dare's Challenge #297 ... an opportunity to do the same color challenge as our Hair-do colors "Glacier, Sorbet and Nutmeg") and enter in both challenges.  Every once in awhile Twisted Sister will pop in with a special “TWIST”. Random Draw for prize "Bag of Things" after each Challenge. Hope you’ll decide to play along with the Double Trouble Challenges HERE.

For the inside of the card...chose another design paper from Paper Fundamentals, cut the one side with a die and added a strip of the New England Ivy along the border.

The embossed background is the perfect setting for your die cut butterflies. That green die cut branch stands out against everything else just right - this is gorgeous!
