Butterfly and Color Inspirations

At Stamp TV this week, Gina's color challenge is : Brown, Yellow and Ivory. There will now be only 2 weekly challenges at STV... a color and a sketch one.
For this one, I used GKD "Hope is Faith" set for the butterfly and "A Year of Leaves" set for the sentiment and caterpillar. Used "Happy Birthday" stamp from Creative Clear Stamps. My base card is GKD Ivory. I used GKD Chocolate Kiss CS for the mat which I embossed with Cuttlebug EF Diamonds. I stamped the butterfly on GKD Yellow CS with Memento Rich Cocoa and cut out. Also did the caterpillar in same way. Attached the yellow mat on a mat of K&CO pattern paper. Trimmed the card with Yellow Ribbon from stash and Pearls that I colored brown with Copics.
Other Challenges:
One Stop Challenge: Photo inspiration for the challenge is a photo of a caterpillar and butterfly;
 think of it as a before and after.
Flutter by Wednesday: Make a NEW birthday card with a butterfly, fairy or angel on it AND use the sketch by Mercy shown on right. They have some fantastic prizes this week in honor of Michelle's birthday.
You must have done a challenge with them before to qualify for prize.

Thanks for dropping by today.
