One For Three

I took on three challenges at one time for this card - Paper Players Challenge #26, Mojo Monday 167 and colourQ challenge #61.  The hardest part for me was figuring out how to use the five colors so that the card was pleasing to the eye.
The card is 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" so that it would fit in a regular envelope.  I used Soft Suede as the card base.  I layered a piece of Wild Wasabi with a strip of Tempting Turquoise and a strip of Blueberry Crisp designer paper both of them
punched on one edge with the Scallop Border Punch. A piece of Tempting Turquoise was cut and embossed using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die.  The  Flower Burst Embosslit Die was used on a piece of Wild Wasabi card stock.  Before I removed the die cuts from the card stock, I inked them with VersaMark and heat embossed them with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  With the 1-3/8" Circle Punch, I punched out a piece of Whisper White card stock, sponged the edge with Tempting Turquoise ink, added two of the butterflies using Mini Glue Dots and matted it with Soft Suede card stock punched out with the Scallop Circle punch that was sponged on the edge with Soft Suede ink.  Rhinestones were added to the butterfly bodies.  A Tempting Turquoise brad was added to the center of the flower.  I then matted that with a circle of Whisper White card stock that I cut out with the Circle Scissor Plus, sponged with Tempting Turquoise ink and added to a Soft Suede scallop circle punched out with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  Three loops of Whisper White satin ribbon were added to the card front.  Both the flower and butterfly layers were popped up on dimensionals and attached to the card.  White dots were added to the scallops of the designer paper with the white gel pen.  No stamping on this one but sure used a lot of tools.  I hope you enjoy it.
