Good morning!!  Today's card uses the 7th Wild Card Colour Challenge...yikes!!!  I must say I almost didn't participate in my own challenge.  Really...this is not a go-to colour combo for I really had to mull it around in my brain.  I was also tempted to have it mostly white with only hints of these colours, but that wouldn't be a challenge.  The first 3 colours are fine as they are jewel toned, but the red...YIKES!  So I went for the old butterfly  The next challenge is a great one and was drawn by my good friend, Melisa, when she was over for tea lattes and card chit chat last night...thanks, for that in the next week :)  Have a fun day!!

Ahhhh, some nice deep colors to work with this week. But that red?! REALLY? There's always one, isn't there? lol

Anyways, I do love what you did with the sketch. Those embossed leaves make such a neat background! And nice splash of red with the butterfly. ;)
