Not What I Expected.../ Color Throwdown 145

I sat down this morning with a pretty good idea about what I was going to make. Last night, I checked out the Color Throwdown colors of the week: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, & Pear Pizzazz. I decided that these colors would work great with Pick a Petal. So, this morning I made a super cool butterfly using Pick a Petal. I cut out the wings (gasp! You know I so rarely cut things by hand), embossed the wings, & textured the body. You may notice that this card is oddly butterfly free. Who knew? As I made my "butterfly" card I experimented with the soon to be retired Flower Blossom Sizzlet & just loved how it layered with my flower punch. I added the elegant lines background and soon realized that there really was no room on this card for the butterfly! For a while I tried to force it, but that so wasn't working. Instead, I trimmed down my Whisper White background, tried a couple different options for the layer behind it, & ended with more Pear Pizzazz and a bunch of cheery flowers. I guess it just goes to show that you never know where you'll end up. Perhaps that lovely butterfly will show up on another card some time soon. :)


  1. I love the embossing...the flower...everything! Lovely! ;)

  2. Very pretty. Love your unique layout and how you used our palette!
