52CC week 7 - blue, aqua green


The prompt for week 7 is to use the following colours - blue, green, aqua, white, cream.  I made two birthday cards, but no Christmas card.

The butterflies are punched (Martha Stewart) in dark blue for the shadow and again in fresh green for the 3D effect, a row of nail heads in aqua completes the butterfly bodies.  I made two mats in aqua and white and used a border punch (MS again) at the base for a little detail.  The sentiment is done with two Stampin Up punches, I added a little row of nail heads at each side for a stronger horizontal line.

The next card uses some old Basic Grey 'Two Scoops' papers.  I punched the flowers (EK Success) and fronds (MS), then added some two Scoops brads to the flower centres.  The scalloped circles are done with Wood are punches and the lace stamp is from Stampin Up.  The sentiment stamp is from Stamping All Day, they have a really nice range of small clear sentiment stamps.

I think the butterfly is my favourite, I especially like the way the bordered mats look :-)
