Celebrating You

Welcome to another What If? Wednesday challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog.  This week we have a color challenge for you:
Now, these are perfect Halloween colors, but since I don't celebrate Halloween, I had to get a bit creative.  It started out as a birthday card for my mother-in-law since she loves butterflies, but the colors just don't work for her, so I'll have to make another one for her.  
I started out by stamping the Sheet Music stamp in a light gray.  Then I stamped Butterfly (lg) in purple, lime and orange.  I embossed it with a woodgrain embossing folder, but it kind of obscures the sheet music image.  Bummer!  The sentiment is a sneak peek of our 4th (it's not yet released) new word builder set.  They're all so fun!  You can mix and match with the words and it's easy to create multi-colored sentiments.  The sentiment panel looked a little bare after that, so I partially stamped some orange butterflies and added a few orange pearls.  I can't wait to see what you do with this color combo.  So, head on over to the RI blog and see what the rest of the DT came up with.

I think the card is gorgeous Heather and the colours also. Such a shame that MIL wouldn't like them.
