 Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  
This week's theme is: All About Mom

And here is the card I created:
I had these papers out from a card I made last week, and I just really loved the combination!  There might be another one in the future using the same papers/color combo.  For my "Mom", I used a fun technique for lining up the dies perfectly.  I will be sharing the technique as a Project of the Week on Monday, May 17.  So, if you want to see how I do it (and it's really easy) come back and check it out.
For my card, I used the papers and a teal cardstock already on my desk, and I paired them with a bit of melon colored ribbon and some peach lace.  I already had the gold die cut piece in my bits and pieces stash.  I finished everything off with the stamped butterfly and some peach pearls that I have had for a long time.  They are not an easy color to match!  I had a little tiny strip of patterned paper left from cutting the background panel and it was just the right size to embellish the inside of the card.
After I stamped and colored the butterfly, I added some gold Nuvo Shimmer pen over the top which gives it a nice glittery shimmer.  It's hard to see, but you can catch a glimpse of it in the photo below.

What an interesting color combo. Lovely layout with the sketch. Butterfly tops it right off. Great card.

Orange is a color I don't use very often except at Halloween. But I love this combination you used. Love the pretty butterfly. Anxious to see your tutorial in a couple of weeks.

This is a really pretty card in an unusual, but striking, colour combination. The shiny butterfly is a scene stealer. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
