Double D - Black & White w/Pop of Color

Hello Friends!
Time for another fun challenge over at the

Team Darlene is our host today and the theme is

Black & White with a POP of COLOR

Here's the mood board to help get you inspired . . .

My eye was drawn to that beautiful orange butterfly
so I got busy with my Ken Oliver color burst and created a
colorful panel for which to die cut my butterflies.
What do you think?

Yep ... that's where it all began and I'm thrilled with the outcome!

Here's a peek at the inside.
I left it blank for a personal note since
the main sentiment is simply Hello!
A few little butterflies were added to bring it all together.

For more inspiration please pop over

ALL your butterflies are so pretty made from your Color Burst background! I especially love those three little cuties fluttering up the inside of your card.
You were beautifully inspired by that butterfly picture. I think I got carried away with the kitties, but sometimes I'm out of control. Your pretty die cut background sure sets up a dreamy garden scene.

Oh my it is gorgeous!! I love the colors in the butterfly and such a lovely layout of the card, so neat that you carried them to the inside of the card also!

Carol L said...

All I can say is WOW to the pop of fabulous color on your card! The butterflies are lovely and they look so pretty on the die-cut panel you used! The inside is as pretty as the outside!

Craftyfield said...

What a great colour scheme, that one colour just pops off the black and white and the butterflies look ready to fly off! Your card is gorgeous, inside and out, thanks for showing us at Country View Challenges this month.

Judy Woodland said...
