Embellish Magazine - Circle Card Color Challenge

Have you checked out Embellish Magazine yet? You should pop over. They have had a few color challenges with the most amazing color combo's!! Really fresh combos and twists like polkadots and circles!! The most recent challenge is to use these colors and create a circle shaped card. These colors are NOT ones I would pick on my own {reminding myself that the whole idea of a challenge is to do something that is different}. This is the card I ended up with. It is definately growing on me. I folded the green textured cardstock and used my coluzzle to cut out the circle. Then I added the colored strips and sentiment. The butterfly is actually stamped onto acetate with StazOn, painted with a light green paint and then adhered to the card with a glue dot. The stitching and the butterfly trail are faux stitching!! Supplies: Stamps-Butterfly(Rubber Stampede), Beautiful Blooms (Papertrey Ink); Cardstock - mint green (Bazzill), Spring Rain, Select White (Papertrey Ink), brown (scrap); Ink - Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!), Jet Black (StazOn); Other - Coluzzle, acetate, paint and brush, Chocolate Chip marker (Stampin' Up!). So, have you made a circle card lately?? It has been a while since I have so this was just the challenge I needed to get around to it....snort, hehe, get it!! Thanks for dropping in!! Donelda

I loved the card at first sight. That treatment on the butterfly is great and the colors are soft and calm.
