Bright Color Butterfly

 Hello!  Sometimes in making cards, we fantasize about colors and make the impossible.  I never saw a red and yellow butterfly but I dreamed this one up for a card and added ribbons to visualize its flight in colors of orange, red and yellow.  I placed it on a field of embossed flowers on colorful circles.
Supplies: Repeat Impressions Butterfly and Sentiment Stamps, Darice EF Floral Frenzy, Orange and Yellow CS, Unknown Pattern paper from Stash, Nesties Oval Die, Memento Lady Bug Ink, Black Gems.
Challenges:
The House That Stamps Built: WIW Repeat Impressions Color Challenge Yellow, Orange, Red
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says Make It Colorful
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: Use pattern paper
AAA Cards: #47 Spectacular Embossing
Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Use Butterflies and Birds with Ribbon.
Use one or both.













Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Beautiful! I don't see anything wrong with a red and yellow butterfly! : ) It's my favorite RI stamp and I think it looks stunning in any form. Love the embossing on the patterned paper. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built
