Hugs - Color Dare Challenge #540 Fancy Five

This is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #540 "Fancy Five" and my choice of three colors were Sapphire, Sage and Ballerina.  


I had seen this technique using a butterfly stamp and chose to use one of my butterfly stamp sets I hadn't yet used.  With re-inks... placing colors on a baby wipe, then press stamp on baby wipe and then onto cardstock.  I didn't have the re-inks for the most recent CTMH colors, but found a pretty good match with Blossom and Juniper. I substituted with a different wipe... so it came out okay but think I need some baby wipes for comparison and also add more colors.  

Since the colors were pastel I decided to use a dark background.  In my stash I had an old retired Paper Fundamentals "Enchantment" and pulled out a pretty basket weave in Sapphire. 

I looked through several challenges to see if there was a sketch that appealed to me and decided on Tuesday Morning's Sketch Challenge #698.  The only problem was when I completed my post today I noted it was closing before the Color Dare Challenge so I couldn't enter their challenge.  Oh well, lesson learned, or maybe not.  

Die cut the corner frame of honeycones in the three colors and then pieced in the different color hexagons.  The circle die had a decorative scalloped edge, and then finished off with a Hugs sentiment die.  

For the inside of the card I took some of the extra extra hexagons and experimental butterfly pieces and adhered on the inside corner of card.  

Please hop on over and join us at ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge, check out our Design Team inspiration, and let's see what you create... hope to see you there.

Beautiful card! I love these colors and that butterfly is gorgeous. I'm sorry you missed the TMS challenge, but we're happy you used the sketch.
