A Monochromatic Farewell

Today is the beginning of a new color challenge over at Dynamic Duos and the end of my term on the design team!  My, how time has flown!  With such wonderful team mates, it’s no wonder!  I will miss them all, but will definitely be visiting their blogs in the future!  Thank you so much, Lesley, for giving me the opportunity!

For my final card as a design team member, I found myself a little stumped.  I’m not exactly a More Mustard fan.  After a few happy accidents with ink and cardstock, a light bulb finally went on and I came up with a clean and simple card!

I used a Martha Steward butterfly punch & So Saffron cardstock to create four little butterflies.  Then, I sponged the butterflies with More Mustard ink and adhered them to a kraft cardstock panel.  I mounted this on a piece of More Mustard cardstock and then used foam dots to pop the entire piece up a bit on the card base.  The sentiment was stamped in More Mustard.

Be sure to visit the rest of the team’s blogs as there is so much wonderful inspiration this week!  Then, be sure to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Thursday at noon (PDT)!

Have yourself a super Saturday!

    The depth of color in those butterflies is lovely – and absolutely brilliant against the kraft! I have loved our time together on the design team – I will definitely keep reading your blog for the wonderful inspiration!
