Sorry… I just couldn’t resist the punny post title!  This is a card I created to combine a few different challenges.

I’ve taken the color scheme from the current challenge at The Paper Players.  I would not have thought to combine these colors, and I had a little trouble working with them, but I suppose it turned out OK in the end.  I will readily admit this wasn’t one of my best coloring jobs, but I think the marker colors match the specified colors pretty well.  The embossed clouds tie into the current AEIHeartU challenge.  The layout is from the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge that ends tomorrow morning.  The two butterflies are adhered with dimensional adhesive for a little visual separation from the background.  The narrow strip of kraft cardstock is stamped tone-on-tone with a subtle texture stamp.
