So Incredibly Grateful

Good evening!! I didn't think I'd have time to make this card...didn't think it would come together so quickly!!! I say that because it's for Kristina's new colour challenge this week and, again, there are SIX colours to work with!!!  I have to make a checklist on my scratch paper to make sure I've used them all!! LOL  I've been thinking about these colours all day and this gorgeous Basic Grey Kioshi paper kept jumping around in my brain...then came the SU butterflies die, then a purple tissue blossom :)  And my PTI order finally came via many stops along the way.  This sentiment is from the Inside and Out Thank-you set.  Now I did do some embossing on the cream panel (woodgrain) and the eggplant panel (distressed stripes) but they unfortunately do not show up that well....here's a close up to click on...it's a bit better to see then. 

The panel under the butterfly is eggplant, although it looks brown...and the sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip...so yes, all the colours are there!! LOL   I was so blessed to get another nod from Kristina this week, along with my dear friend, Melisa!!  We love Kristina so it is a bit of a thrill to have our cards side by side in the round up :)  Oh, and lastly, I'm using Mercy's sketch today...when it's busy, one must combine challenges :)  Sleep well!!  I'm so incredibly grateful you stopped by today :)

What's in it?
Stamps: PTI inside and out thank-you
Ink: SU choc chip
Paper: PTI cream, SU eggplant, kiwi kiss, Basic Grey kioshi, tissue paper
Accessories: PTI rustic twine, PTI blossoms die and woodgrain impression plate, fiskars apron lace punch, brad, embossing folder, stitching, SU thin grosgrain, SU butterflies die

Beautiful card! Love the big tissue paper flower as your butterfly center and the double ribbon wrap! :)

Be still my heart, another butter fly card :D I bow in your general direction, Maureen. Six colours would just about send me for a loop LOL! Lovely use of Mercy's sketch and a delicious use of the colours. Congrats on the call out for last week's colours :D

I can't believe my luck lately... It's been almost embarrassing! Think I'll wait until the next release to see if there is anything new that catches my eye. If not, lots of other goodies to chose from. Two I had on my wish list Julee sent to me as part of her craft room clean up draw. One image on each set was damaged so not included, but as luck would have it, they are two I can live without :D After a very grueling past six weeks, the wins have lifted my spirits immensely :D

Kids have a getting out of school countdown calendar already and I'm sure you are too ;D Have a great day!

You've hit my soft spot with that gorgeous butterfly - so pretty with it's delicate tissue body and twine anntenae!
Huge congrats on the call out! It's no surprise of course as your cards are fabulous!
