Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge 8

Yesterday I had put colour onto an piece of card for the background of this card for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge this month, without really knowing what stamps I would use. Then the postman came and brought me my new stamps that I ordered at the end on last week. As soon as I saw the Butterfly Dress stamp I knew that this was the one I was going to use. I had a rummage in my cupboard as I knew there were some stamps that would go with the flowers on the dress, then over stamped using the same colours I had made the backing paper with. The colours used were Cracked Pistachio, Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concorde distress inks. Next I stamped out the image a couple of times and cut one out using a grand circle spellbinders die then cut another using some purple card and finally a decorative circle also from spellbinders in mirri card.

I layered my backing paper onto some more purple card and also some gold mirri card, added some ribbon around the centre of the card putting it all onto an 8x8 white card base. I then coloured the image using distress pens in matching colours also adding peacock feathers to the colour used for the butterflies. Then on my second image I only coloured the some of the butterflies before cutting these out and adding them to the main image.

 Finally I popped the image onto the card, added a bow in matching ribbon, added some card candy and die cut sentiment. I have both my Sister's and Sister-in-laws birthday in a few days time, just need to make my mind up who gets this one.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
