CAS Colours and Sketches #422

June is upon us which means we have a new hostess for the month.  CAS Colours and Sketches DT member Shannon has chosen this lovely color combination for everyone to try.

For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutrals 
such as white, ivory, black, brown, grey, or metallics; however, no other colors should be added to 
your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other 
companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.

Those who know me are aware of my lack of love for the color purple.  It's my least liked color with true oranges coming in a close second.  All that to say that this was truly a CHALLENGE for me.

I kept the card very simple.  I stamped the three part butterfly with inks closely matching the challenge colors, added a sentiment and some clear droplets.  I opted to emboss the front panel of my card base to give it a bit more interest.  

I invite you to visit our blog for more inspiration.  We'd love to see your creation in our gallery.

  1. Your butterfly and the card design is the cutest Julie. xo

  2. Love this stamp set!! Your card is beautiful!

  3. LOVEly in lavender - or any other color in the rainbow!

  4. Ahh, such pretty purples with a splash of green. Are you sure this card does not win you over? :D

  5. Jules as a purple-lover this card ticks all my boxes! I love the simple layering of the stamps and I'm guessing it would look great in lots of other colourways too. Great peek of the embossed base too. Gorgeous!

  6. The little glimpse of embossed card front is the perfect foil to that pretty butterfly Julie. Loving the colours this week! Vicky x

  7. OH my! I am truly sorry that purple is clearly not wanted in your wheelhouse, but I so do appreciate and love what you have created for this challenge. So light, simple and beautiful! I am so in love with this butterfly as well - it seems to be falling into my path a lot lately - I think it is a sign it wants to be in my stash! Thanks for being a trooper.
