Forgotten Friday 9 - Another Butterfly - Or Three

I can't believe that it's Friday again, it has come around so quickly. This is my contribution to Forgotten Friday over at Poppy Cottage this week. Last week I used the Harlequin Butterfly stamp plate, and while I was getting them out of the cupboard I also got out the Patchwork Butterfly stamp plate. Last night I stamped out the butterfly and the sentiment several times, and I coloured 3 in while watching the TV intending to pick the one that I liked the best to post on here today. This morning I printed off 3 different backing papers from the Artylicious Essence of Nature CD and put 3 cards together, all very similar. However I could not decide which one I like the best so I have posted all 3.

The first card I made, I coloured the butterfly with shades of pink, added some ribbon to the side of the card and also added some flowers. I used my Big and Juicy ink pads to add some colour to the sentiments on all of the cards matching them to the colours I used on the butterflies.

For the second card I used red's, orange's and yellow's for the butterfly. Some orange and yellow ribbon and some orange flowers.

And the third I used lilacs, purple and green. Also flowers and ribbons that matched the colours used.
Which one do you prefer?
Thanks for looking.

Sue, thank you so much for joining in my Forgotten Friday Post. Apologies for the delay in my comment, but I've been away visiting my parents. I love this big EI butterfly, it's a gorgeous stamp, and it looks lovely with the Essence of Nature backing papers. I like all of your colour combinations, so I can't choose a favourite! Hope to see you again on Friday, Judith xx
