Navy Flutters

Happy Wednesday!
Can you believe it??? I'm posting on time, I'm not running late, and except for the dog who keeps tripping me up, I'm actually going to get out the door today when I'm supposed to. Not sure what the deal is with Wednesdays, but I've had a string of doozies.

So, today's card is  something that's kind of fresh and fun despite the dark colors. I really love putting blues and greens together and Night of Navy and Old Olive are probably one of my favorite combinations, but toss a little splash of Ridinghood Red in there, and wow! Fun right?

The card base here is Night of Navy and I used my Sizzix Flourish Floral embossing folder to add texture. Next, I layered together a narrow strip of Ridinghood Red with another of Old Olive and adhered that along the open edge. The center panel is Neenah Solar White stamped with Old Olive (branch and sentiment) and the flowers and butterfly are stamped with Ridinghood Red and Night of Navy on separate pieces of white. They're hand trimmed and popped up on foam dimensionals with a few pearls for the flower centers and butterfly body to finish them off. The stamped piece is layered on Ridinghood Red and Old Olive too and then adhered directly to the card.

Enjoy your day!
