Colour Block Butterflies

Good morning!
I have a quick post here before work...I'm also waiting for my workshop order to arrive...hope it gets here before I leave for work!

So here is a card I made last night whilst I was apparently 'in the zone'! I wanted to combine a few challenges I've seen over the last week, a couple of which that are asking for something a little 'different', like 'colour blocking' and 'negative die'.
So here's what I came up with...

I have used the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly punches, backed with coloured card to use both techniques. I really like the effect too...real CAS.

The sentiment is from Tiny Tags and the border was made using the Small Heart punch. Lots of punches on this one!

Cardstock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple, Calypso Coral
Ink - Basic Black
Stamps - Tiny Tags
Punches - Small Heart, Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly

As you've noticed, I've used one of the soon to be retired colours, Calypso Coral, on my card. Isn't it lush? If you would like to get your hands on the retiring In Colours, or any other Stampin' Up! products, please do contact me and I'll be more than happy to take your order!


Right I'm off to work...could be a busy one as it's the first day of Cheltenham Races today! Have fun!
