Colour throwdown # 95

Happy Sunny Friday All!

It`s another beautiful day here in sunny Hull, got to make the most of it `cos I don`t think it`s going to last. We`ve got a few rainy days forecast but hopefully then summer will start properly :)

It`s been so hot up here in my loft that I have been a bit slow with my creativity this week. I did however manage to make a card for this weeks challenge at  Colour throwdown.
This is the swatch they gave us. Gorgeous bright summery colours. I was a bit unsure about the black though
so I only used a tiny bit. This is my card.

I`ve used my Docrafts Whispers Butterflies again, stamped onto acetate this time and heat embossed.
Here is a close up of one of the butterflies. 
The DP is by ShabbyPrincess and I`ve layered onto some sky blue card.
I`ve added a piece of bright pink ribbon and I`ve made up a flower with a mixture from my stash, then added a green gem brad to finish.
Some sky blue flat backed pearls to fill the corner  and a sentiment from Papertrey stamped in black.

I`m having a day out tomorrow. All the kids and grandkids are going to the local park for a charity family fun day and I`ll be there making sure they don`t get up to mischief ( ha ha).

Thanks for popping in, Lynne xxx 


  1. Just gorgeous, Lynne! Love what you did with these colors---those butterflies look like they could float off the page!

  2. Never mind the weather - it's definitely summer on your card! Have fun tomorrow - your kids and grandkids are probably telling their friends that they'll be there making sure YOU don't get up to mischief...
