It’s time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Heather is our hostess this week and she gave us a gorgeous inspiration photo to pick three colors from.

I picked the light yellow, green and orange as my colors.  I stamped the big image from Butterflies & Blossoms in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with  Copic Markers (Flowers: Y00, Y11, Y13, YR23, YR27, E37   Leaves: G40, G43, G46) and cut out. The small butterfly was stamped and colored (Y17, YR15, YR18) as well.

A frame was cut and embossed with a Picot Edge Circle and Standard Circle Nestabilities die. A piece of My Mind’s Eye Be Amazing patterned paper was cut with a slightly larger circle die and adhered behind the white frame. The cut out images were adhered over the frame with dimensionals. A 2″ x 3 7/8″ strip of Be Amazing Paper was adhered to a 3 7/8″ square of the same paper pack. The layers were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger Kraft cardstock square. May Arts Ribbon was tied around the square horizontally before the frame was adhered over the squares.

The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Part of the new Fancy That Want2Scrap Border bling and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.
