LSC162 - Kind Thoughts



Here is my take on today's fun LSC #162 challenge.
We have to use a white background and we are only allowed one other color....!!!
No black and white...., for me no problemo - it's right up my alley...- LOL!!!

I love, love.....white and red together - so powerful!!!

The other thing I like lately are the Sketch challenges - so I combined Wednesday's LSC #170 and todays LSC #162 together and out came this card.

I just can't keep my hands of this beautiful new Set of mine "Kind Thoughts" - I guess the butterflies are
doing it to me....LOL!!!

For the pierced trail behind the butterflies - I have used a pencil first to see where and how I wanted them. Then I used the piercing tool and gently pushed the holes in. I kind like how it turned out!!!

The gorgeous square Rhinestone Brads are from Stampin Up and I can't believe I haven't used them much...~TFL~

I love this card, the red just pops right off the page, and those butterflies are so great!

I also like that you have changed the background of the blog back to white, it makes it a lot more crisp and I think the images really stick out and the colours come out very bold in the photos.

Silke,
wunderschön deine Schmetterlingskarte. Und ganz toll daß die Karte mit nur 2 Farben so toll wirkt.
Beeindruckend.

Just love this card, second time round even. Think I left a comment on SCS and like it so much I had to comment again :) The butterfly trials are perfect and I love the red and white combo. Well done.

Another WOW! I can't believe how nice your card turned out for this challenge! It is really difficult to pull the White and One Other Color Challenge off, but you sailed through with flying colors with this card! GREAT job, Silke!
