Explosion of Colour

The theme this week for the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is Explosion of Colour.  I made this card for my sister's birthday this month. 

To create this card I used Brusho on glossy card stock.  I first stamped my card stock with several background stamps from my collection before I added the Brusho colours of purple and turquoise.  
To complete the card I added two laced butterflies that I also added Brusho colour to.  My final touch was adding some white pearls and lace. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team and join our challenge.

  2. A really beautiful card Judy! I love the deep rich colours and the lacy butterflies. Absolutely gorgeous!! hugs xx

  3. Beautiful, I love the butterflies and the wonderful background. I bet your sister was thrilled with it! Have a great week!

  4. Judy, this is gorgeous. Love the background and the gorgeous vibrant colours.

    I have those butterflies myself in an insipid peachy tone, they look so much better with what you have done to them and fit the project to perfection.

    I am sorry I don't get by anywhere near as often as I should, but wanted to thank you for all your hard work for the team.
