CTD#61, SC247

I made this card for the SC247 and the CTD#61 that Tammy is hosting this week. She challenged us to use Olive, Mustard, Rose Red, Regal Rose and Chocolate, or any of those colors you wish. I managed to use them all. They do look pretty together, although my photo has one of those wonky greenish hazes again. I used the flourishes CB ef on the olive panel and the Swiss Dots ef on the mustard. The main image is from Echoes of Kindness and was colored with markers before stamping. I added some stickles for a little pop after sponging and piercing the edges. The butterfly is from a MS punch, and the sentiment panel was done with a G Studio stamp and the word window and modern label punches. For the final touch I added 3 different sizes of gold beads.
As always, thanks for spending a little bit of your day with me today :)
