Colour Q Friend

When I saw this colour combo at Colour Q I knew I had to play this week. I pulled out a stamp set that hasn't been out of the cupboard in a long time - Great Friend. The butterflies were stamped and cut out with craft scissors. The leaves were stamped in old olive and then stamped off to give the images depth. I used the mat pack and paper piercing tool to make th erow of holes by the ribbon. The butterflies were given 'bodies' with rhinestones.
I used the colours from Colour Q and the sketch from this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge to create this card.

The Fun Stuff:
1. Paper – Whisper White, So Saffron, Poppy Parade, Old Olive cardstock and Peach Parfait DSP
2. Stamps – Great Friend, Teeny Tiny Wishes
3. Punches – Large Rounded Corner (retired), Scallop Trim Border, Word Window
4. Accessories – Rhinestones, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Mat Pack and Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin’ Dimensionals
