Time for another What If Wednesday? challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a color combo for you:
Here's my take:
I went a bit more literal with the gold part; I used gold embossing powder on my gorgeous butterflies.  Then I used a couple different blue and green markers to color in the spots.  I used some yummy polka dotted ribbon that I've had in my stash forever.  I picked some of the marker colors just so I could use it. : )  Head on over to The House blog and see how the rest of the DT has used this color combo.  Then get inky, there's a $25 gift certificate up for grabs this month.  The more you play, the more chances you have to win it.

The Paper Girls #91--use stamps (no digis this time)
Craft Dee Bow-Z--anything goes with handmade bow
One Stitch At A Time #249--the dead/remembrance day (this is a sympathy card
YNS #26--color combo or sketch (I used the sketch but turned it on it's side)
Jo's Scrap Shack #112--anything goes

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Butterfly (lg.)", "Butterfly (sm.)" and "Warm Memories"
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangles
