CAS Color Challenge

This week's CAS challenge is to use pinks/corals, kraft, and one other coordinating color of your choice. I paired Papertrey's Berry Sorbet with the SU retired color (*sniff, sniff*) Cool Caribbean. I just love the way these colors look together, and I really think they pop against a kraft background.


For my focal point, I used my Nestabilities to cut out two butterflies, then embossed both with a Cuttlebug folder. Next I layered them and finished it off with a few rhinestones.

So, want to play along? Head over to Splitcoast for all the details. I can't wait to see what everyone creates this week!

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Cool Caribbean, PTI Berry Sorbet
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Nestabilities butterflies, Cuttlebug Textile Texture, rhinestones (Me & My Big Ideas)

So simple, so beautiful, so wish I could crack the CAS too! LOL!
Lovely idea to emboss the buttefly and the added 'bling' is a super shiny finishing touch!
