Tone on Tone

I saw THIS card on Kim Hughs' blog.  Her card was inspired by Regina's card as you will see on Kim's post.                                                              I loved the tone on tone and it happens to be one of my favorite layouts so I had to create my own version.  But I couldn't stop at one ... and ended up with 3 quite different versions.
I decided to make my squares smaller and use butterflies (Martha Stewart) and leaves (Punch a Bunch).  The buttons on the butterfly card are from BasicGrey.  The yellow was a bit too bright but a bit of Copic marker colored on it made it the perfect match.  The sentiment comes from Around & About Sentiments (Papertrey Ink) which I can't seem to stop using!!  I even inked up just bits of it to add on this first card.  I've also used the stripes from the Background Basics :Retro (Papertrey Ink) and some text for the leaves (Background Basics: Text Style - Papertrey Ink) on this first card.
Thanks for dropping by my little blogging corner of the world.  Enjoy your day!

Wow! I just love these cards. They are too cute. I can't decide between the butterflies and the leaves for my favorite, though. I'll be casing these!

These are all so lovely! I think the third one is my very favourite of the three.

I took a quick peek at these yesterday, but I missed the 3rd card, that one may be my favorite. I love the subtle colors {perfect man card!}
