It's COLOUR WEEK at Just Us Girls

It's my Good Friend Judy Woodland's
First Time Hosting at Just Us Girls
as she recently joined us with her awesome talent
and has chosen such gorgeous soft colours
for our Colour Challenge.
It just so happens that we both love
the colour Lavender (and purple) so I was
excited when I saw her chosen colours
of  Lavender Peach & Ivory.
I seem to have been making lots of floral type card lately
so this was a perfect chance to move away from them.
This card came together so easily.
I have this beautiful Mother of Pearl metallic card stock
which was just perfect for the Ivory colour required.
I again used ivory card stock for my flourishes background
which were randomly heat embossed
with Satin Pearl Embossing Powder.
Inked with Memento Lulu Lavender &
SU Calypso Coral.
Added foam squares for dimension.
My big butterfly is from Spellbinders
and cut from lavender metallic paper.
The 'with love' is cut from the same paper
and is Spellbinders Sentiment 3.
Finished off with random pearls in
lavender and ivory on my butterfly.
I am sure you will love playing with these
beautiful colours so I look forward to
checking out Our Blog  - that is
after you have been inspired by all the
other beautiful cards created by
our Guest Angie and the Design Team.
You are never disappointed are you?
And you know that by joining is
you have the chance to be chosen as
Chic of the Week and could be
Guest Designer for June.
Thanks so much for dropping in and
it is always lovely to read your comments.

Ina, what a stunning background you created! So soft and pretty, and it frames the butterfly beautifully! Love this!

Your card is gorgeous. I would never have thought of using those colors together but you have proved that they look wonderful combined. Thanks for sharing and hope you are doing great too!

So pretty with the metallic look, swirls and cool sentiment!!!

Nancy said...

These colors were tricky for me....but not for you Ina! This background is so pretty!

Judy Woodland said...

I loved this when you showed it to me before, and I love it now. Doing the emboss resist with those colors is just magic. And then the butterfly as a focal and the pearl's simply stunning!!!

The beautiful inking over the flourishes makes a wonderful background for your butterfly, Ina.

Sue VanDeVusse said...

Ina, that background is gorgeous! I love the soft blending of the colors paired with the embossing. Perfect backdrop for that pretty butterfly.

I have missed a ton of your posts. Sorry. This is one of the prettiest backgrounds I have ever seen. Love the simple greeting and the butterfly.
