Brightly Winged

Hello everyone,

Another charity card post today using the bright green card bases from my stash.

The textured card base is DCWV.  The printed paper is Cosmo Cricket layered on Stampin' Up Melon Mambo.  The image is Stampendous Butterfly Trio stamped in Melon Mambo on Whisper White, layered on more Melon Mambo and highlighted with Wink of Stella Clear 999.  The sentiment Rubbernecker Happy Birthday stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The ribbon is American Crafts.

Something I am learning from this series is that the colours don't have to be absolute perfect matches.  Using just three colours which speak nicely to each other in tone and shade still achieves great results.  Until I was brave enough to try working with this bright green, I would not have dared to use anything but white with this printed paper.  This is a loud, bright, bold, and really beautiful card!

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
