A Double Challenge and Triple Thanks

A Double Challenge
My allergy induced brain fog is starting to lift thanks to lots of Sudafed and Allegra. But I am still feeling the need for a little inspiration.

For today's card, I combined two challenges. I turned to the Pals Paper Arts challenge for my layout and for my color palette I referred to the ColourQ Challenge.

Tone on Tone
For the tone on tone butterflies I combined:
  • Strawberry Slush and Rose Red
  • Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay
  • Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze

Bakers Twine and Candy Dots
I wrapped Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine from the Occasions Catalog around the card and secured it to the center of each butterfly with a Daffodil Delight Candy Dot. I had to use an extra glue dot under the twine to keep it in place and stop it from flipping over.

Triple Thanks
I stamped "Thanks" from the Crazy About You stamp sets (one of my new faves) below each butterfly in the matching color. The Whisper White strip of cardstock is 1 1/2" wide which is the exact width to accommodate the butterflies and stamped greeting.
