A Bold Color Challenge

Good Morning, Stampers!

Although the colors are hiding behind the partially die cut butterfly....

they come out bright and bold when you lift up on the wings!

Neat card! When I first looked at this, the background reminded me of those backdrops the stars take pictures in front of at events....which would totally make the butterfly the star of this card! Thanks for playing along at Create with Connie and Mary!

Wow, Melissa! That butterfly is gorgeous with the blend of colors and the die cut over it. I think that was a great idea to combine the Swallowtail stamp and frame lit together. It's such a pleasure to see what you created for the challenge! Thanks for joining us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

What a cool butterfly! I love that you see the detail and color through the lacy wings, and I also love the all-over sentiment! Your card is so unique and fun - thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

What a clever card Melissa! the Swallowtail has been around for some time and it's often different to make it look fresh and interesting - this card certainly does this! I love how the blended butterfly peeks out from behind the diecut, and the movie-night inspired sentiment front panel is very clever indeed. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

WOW!!! LOVE how you layered the large butterfly thinlit cutout over the Swallowtail! What a GREAT look! And using the words to create your background is a just a perfect pairing. Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
