Lost Lagoon Butterfly

So, it's six degrees (NO, that is not a typo!) out there and you can guess what I'm doing in here, right?  Right!  I'm spending the day in my craft studio reorganizing and in between, when I need a break, I'm making some new projects with some of my new goodies from the new 2015 Occasions Catalog that goes live on Tuesday, January 6th.  Sale-A-Bration, where you can earn free products for every $50 purchased, also starts and WOW! do both catalogs have some mighty fine new products.  I'd say my new year is off to a great start!

Today's card was made with the color challenge from Colour Me...! and the sketch from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I used my new Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  I love how open and intricate the butterfly wings are.  For this one, I used a sheet of paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack.

Stamp Set:  Painted Petals (sentiment); Ink:  Lost Lagoon; Card Stock:  All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack, Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Butterflies Thinlits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine
All products Stampin' Up!® unless otherwise noted.

The challenge at was to pick a color scheme from one of the previous 51 challenges.  It's their 1st Anniversary but instead of an anniversary card, I made a thank you card.  I wanted them to know that I so appreciate their challenges.  I'm looking forward to their second year of challenges, too!

You can find the challenge at Colour Me...! HERE.

Here is the past color challenge I chose for my card.  I love these colors together!
