A Little Pink & Orange

Hello again!  I'm so glad you stopped by today because I have a card to share with you that I just LOVE!   The challenge over at Love To Crop is to use orange, pink and one more color.  I chose brown as my other color and here's the card I came up with:

 This card measures 4 3/4" x 5 1/2" and cut from dark brown cardstock.  Patterned paper is from Anna Griffin.  The brown lace trim is paper lace that I colored with a brown marker.

The butterflies are all cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 1 1/5" from pink and orange cardstock scraps.
 This tag is cut from a cuttlebug folder.  I found the perfect little clear stamp in my stash.  It's from Stampabilities, spring set. 
 For added dimension I pop-dotted the card face and all the butterflies are glued down only in the body area so I could curl the wings a little.

I finished out the inside with more scrap paper in pink and orange with a leftover strip of the paper lace and another butterfly cut.  Everything is inked with dark brown.

I hope you like it, it came out even better than I had pictured!  Thanks again for stopping by today and I pray you have a blessed day!
