Butterflies and Newsprint

I was looking for a slightly different color combination, and came up with Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, and Calypso Coral.  I have a really hard time using Calypso Coral and wanted to incorporate it.  I also thought combing the black of the text would add a bit of an edge to an otherwise pretty sweet card.

I do really like the contrast of the newsprint label and scalloped border, and the butterflies add a touch of whimsy.  I’m not completely happy with the leaves in the background, but wanted them to be faded-looking.  Oh, well, overall not a bad afternoon’s work in the old craft room!

  1. This is very pretty. I love newsprint also. I like to wrap with it. I like to tear it. I think it makes colors stand out.

  2. I love the card especially the newspaper print. I think if you used something smaller instead of the big leaves it might work better. I think you did a great job!!

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
