Wishing You Brighter Days

Hi Everyone,

I am playing along with this weeks CAS Colours and Sketches challenge - I have the graphic below.  A real fun sketch - different, that's what I like about it!
The colors I got from the current Color Throwdown, also see below.


I first thought about going quite literal with it, but then I decided against that. Used a curved die from SSS to cut my top panel and used my NBUS Uniko stamps to fill in the bottom panel. The sentiment is also by Uniko. The butterfly is a punch by Martha Stewart. Added tiny sequins and some Stickles.






Also linking up with:
Retro Rubber - flowers (not sure when those stamps came out - not recently, but the punch I used is OLD - years old...)
RRCB 39

Happy Stamping!

Wow eine tolle Kartenidee und Umsetzung, auch wenn der kleine Schmetterling fast untergeht.

Fab take on both challenges. I'm finding colour challenges quite challenging, but I intended to play along with this one because both the colours and the cake are looking so yummie.

Love how you've used that Uniko stamp for your graduating diagonal panel, fabulous! Thanks for playing at CC&S.

OH so fabulous!!! I've yet to try this sexy little swooping cut - LOve what Kimberly Wiener has done using it, too! Gorgeous, Cornelia - it has such dimension that I thought at first the colored panel was on top! xx

Holy....extraordinary how your mind works. This clever way of following that sketch is pure, unadultered genius. It goes without saying that the stamping is amazing but the cleverness of this card knocks me out.
