Quick splash of colour

  Really quick post as I'm off to bed but wanted to get this blogged. I only had time for a quick play at the craft desk this weekend and so stuck with CAS cards.

This one is based on the Colour Splash challenge over at The Play Date Cafe. I just adore this Hot pink combined with Black and so had to give it a go.

The border is stamped and embossed in Black (have lost the packaging so can't remember the stamp brand), then I die cut a Marianne creatables butterfly added some ric-rak and stickles and there you have it.  The pink looks a bit coral coloured on here but it was really more like the hot pink of the colour splash photo.

  1. Oh, Esther, this really speaks to my heart! I think it's the Stampin' Up damask stamp, isn't it? From 'Friends 24-7'? LOVE it! And it looks great paired with this big, wispy pink butterfly, too.

    Thanks for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe!
