Some challenges and a copy cat
For day 229 of 365 cards there is a colour scheme challenge, which I have combined with the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches and the the theme of Autumn Colours from the Saturday Challenge. It could also be entered for Nature, the theme of Three Clovers Designs, a blog I've only just discovered.
The papers I have used are from My Mind's Eye which seemed to me to be most suitable for the challenges.
I made this card after seeing the fabulous technique described on the Clean & Simple Blog. The surround from a Cuttlebug butterfly die-cut was used as a template and a mask for the daubed background colours and the stamped images. The fronds are part of a Penny Black stamp and the little butterfly is from Laura Ashley. The stripy paper is from Cuddly Buddly.
The word serene comes to mind.
