Happy Stampers Color Combo: Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic

This week's challenge is a Color Combo Challenge: Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaroon. So again, we can use any layout, any stamp set, but use these colors.  I actually also used last week's sketch in a vertical layout.  I think you're gonna like this one!

Today I'm featuring the Kinda Eclectic stamp set (the butterflies and greeting) and the It's My Party Designer Series paper from the Occasions Mini catalog! And I LOVE these colors together - so cheery and bright :D  Hope this card makes you smile :D
    Here's a couple of pictures, the side view to show the depth. You may notice, I used last week's sketch (sort of LOL) but turned it more vertical - but still using the Labels framelit and the elements in the upper right and lower left corners of that focal point.

    (Many elements raised with Stampin' Dimensionals)

    When Making This Kinda Eclectic Card

    • It really is a bunch of layering of the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack. 
    • The most time consuming....cutting out the butterflies (stamped in Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaroon, Crushed Curry) and lacing the Linen Thread and knotting thru the buttons.
    • The main focal point is a Labels framelit piece.
