February colour combo challenge at ILWS

Our colour combo challenge this month over at In Love With Stamping is:

Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz and Baja Breeze

I've gone with a fairly simple design for a friend's birthday that's coming up:

Stamp sets: Punch Potpourri, Curly Cute
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum
Punches: Eyelet Border, Butterfly
Other: Basic Rhinestones

The card blank is an A6 landscape of Baja Breeze. The central panel of Whisper White cardstock was stamped with the sentiment in Perfect Plum ink. This was then matted with thin strips of Perfect Plum card top and bottom. Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White strips were punched with the Eyelet Border and adhered direct behind the top of the panel. Plain narrow strips to match were adhered behind the bottom of the panel which was then adhered direct to the card front. The butterfly was stamped twice in each colour, once onto Whisper White card and once on matching card and then punched out. The coloured card butterflies were adhered direct to the central panel. Matching white card butterflies were adhered over the top of each with a glue dot and each was finished with a body of three rhinestones snipped from the strip.

Here are the butterflies close up:

I've been working on a Valentine's project recently and shot the video last night. The plan is to edit it tonight so it will hopefully be ready to share with you tomorrow.
