Baffling Befuddled Butterflies

Oh this color challenge almost did me in! Emily gave us Only Orange, Purely Pomegranate and Brilliant Blue....now where are you going to go with that? They all have the same deep saturation and the Pomegranate and Orange are complementary...but then you throw in that blue..sheesh!

Here's what I finally came up with after much dis-assembling and rearranging and staring and frustration!

I had no designer paper to throw in here, so I had to create my own using the Whisper White. I used the Rock and Roll technique on the butterflies.

Whew, that's done, I'm not sure how I feel about it! It's definitely vibrant...which is a far cry from the snow we have today, can you believe it? And our daughter has a school track meet today....all day, out in the snow!

Oh my poor flowers!

Recipe: Stamps: Great Friend; Ink: Only Orange, Purely Pomegranate, Brilliant Blue, White Craft; Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Only Orange, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White; Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Texturz Plate, Oval Punch, Large White Brads, White Organza Ribbon
