Butterflies Flutter By

Welcome to another My Time Colour Challenge.

This week I got my sister to play along as well!! She has spent the past year in England, and just recently got back to Canada and is staying with me for about a month before her wedding.

This is the colour image we were given

and Heather (my sister) and I also added butterflies to our projects in addition to the colours.

Heather made a welcome card for her future mother-in-law who is coming from New Zealand for the wedding.

The background is stamped using Shapes by Design with Barely Banana ink on Barely Banana cardstock. The butterfly is from Unity, but is discontinued. It was stamped in versamark, then heat embossed with silver powder.

The sentiment is stamped and clear embossed, then punched out with the word window punch.

My card also has a butterfly, but the focus is the Dream Tree Background from Unity.

I stamped it on glossy cardstock in versamark, then heat embossed it with clear powder. I sponged, and rubbed ink (Barely Banana, Rose Red, Lavender Lace, and Cool Carribean) across the background randomly to make the tree pop.

The butterfly is a tiny one, also from Unity, that was stamped on velum, then embossed with glittery EP.

Please leave some love and let my sister know that her card is cute, and since it's only about the 10th card she has ever made she shouldn't expect to be perfect!

Also, visit the rest of the My Time Team, and be sure to visit Lauren's blog to see who she has highlighted this week.

I love that you two sisters were getting your craft on together! Fabulous girl time I say. That tree you use is SOOOOO dramatic and I loved the look of the colors all sponged together.
