Color Combos Galore #183

Hey all!  Just came by to share my take on the current color combo (183) over at Color Combos Galore.

Here is the combo with the inspiration photo:

  
I chose to go a little bit lighter on the palette, because the added designer challenge was to use butterflies.  I thought that the new Butterfly Garden collection from Pink Paislee would be PERFECT.  Was I wrong?! 


(I don't think so.  ;) ) 

The Clear Pop butterfly sticker was the main reason I chose to use Butterfly Garden for this challenge.  I just love the dimension of this sticker.


Here's a little bit better view, dimension-wise.


For the flowers, I cut out lots of flower die-cuts in varying sizes using my Cricut Expression and Walk in My Garden cartridge.  I distressed and layered the die-cuts.   Then, I added a little Prima flower to the center.  I hand cut some leaves and layered everything, adding a few paper posies here and there between the flowers.


(Since Butterly Garden didn't have any orange, I used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye for the flowers.)



Hope you get a chance to play along with the challenge this week.  If you do, please share your work in the CCG Gallery so we can all ooh and aah over your creation.  ;) 

Hope you are having a fabulous week so far.  Thanks for stopping by!
