Hiding in My Craft Room #364 - August 4th - Use 3 colours

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!

Here's my make for HIMCR #364 - Use 3 Colours

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

The sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

The giveaway is 3 digital images from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps!

Here's my card:


1. I have used a 4 in wide strip from a red 12 by 12 to make a simple gate fold card base
2. I coloured the image Butterfly and Flower with my three main colours fuchsia, blue and orange/yellow and cut this out. I attached it to a blue 'retro' frame - this is a sissix die, but I trimmed the result so that it was slightly smaller. I used some of the red card behind it.
3. I matted and layered the base with fuchsia card and then a trimmed floral paper - freebie from a magazine. I added the frame on the front right so that it would overhang the front left when closed.

This card uses all the elements of the current Butterfly Challenge #105
- spin the Wheel with the letter F. I tried my best to match the colours by holding card against my computer screen, I have four folds, flowers and a frame - and of course a butterfly...I will link this card to that challenge!

Hope you will enter the HIMCR  Challenge!

Happy Crafting!
