Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #398

Welcome to the next Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #398!  This week the challenge is to use the provided color scheme (shown at the end of this post) on your card or project.  Our sponsor this week and the prize is from DRS Designs.  All of the details, including prize information, can be found on the Cupcakes Inspiration blog.  I hope you'll play along!

For this card I started out by die cutting the frame.  I used LID's Stitched Mats: Double Stitched Rectangles so I could get the stitching on the outside of the frame as well as the inside of the frame.  Then, I took out the inside piece and used DRS Design's Open Plaid stamp to stamp the lines in gray.  Then on top of that I stamped the Large Open Silhouette Butterfly image.  I stamped the butterfly a second time on a piece of scrap paper and then cut around the outside of it. I added a few white dots with a white Kirarina Wink pen and then placed three green enamel dots in the middle.  I added a small strip of foam tape to the middle of the butterfly and placed it on top of the image I had stamped on the striped paper to give it a 3d look.

Here you can see the stamped butterfly underneath the popped up butterfly.  I also popped up the entire white frame piece and left the striped piece flat on the card base.  For the sentiment I die cut Frantic Stamper's Wavy Banners and then stamped the Congrats sentiment from Frantic Stamper's Baby Party Stamps.


Here is the challenge color scheme.  You can use the photo for inspiration but you don't have to, as long as you use the provided color scheme. I hope you'll join us this week for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #398!  Thanks for stopping by!
