IC228, SC276, CQC28 Take Flight

Happy weekend friends!!!

What are you up to this weekend??? We have nothing major going on.....yippee!!! I'm trying my first Zumba class on Sunday...unfortunately I missed it last weekend. Has anyone tried Zumba yet??? I can't wait!!!

This card is for this weeks IC228 - Crate Label and the layout is from this weeks SC276.  Since I'm lovin'  butterflies lately I just had to choose this inspiration piece *Butterfly*. The colors were inspired by this weeks CQC28 - using Ruby Red, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay.


The images are from the Stampin' Up Hostess Set God's Beauty. Love this Set!!! The sentiment is from the Papertrey Set - Butterfly Dreams....still had it on my desk from the other day and I thought it works perfectly with this butterfly image!!!

The flowers were inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. The leaves were colored with  Bermuda Bay Ink using a Blender Pen. The flowers and the butterfly were raised with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by....enjoy your weekend!!!

ETA: I also submitted my card for this weeks OCC Butterfly Challenge!!!

what lovely colors on your flowers and butterfly Silke! they look metalic!

I just got a DVD set of Zumba published by the creator of it - so far I've only done the 20 minute set of learning the steps! Even that was fun! but I have to do it again - they are tricky at first - but what high energy!!
