Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge using Eureka Stamps Butterfly with Sunflower

It's time for Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!!  This week, our challenge is "Let's get Krafty"!  The challenge was to use Kraft cardstock + another color of your choice.  Our wonderful sponsor for this week is Eureka stamps.

And here is my card:

I really enjoyed creating my card for this challenge.  And it definitely was a challenge not to use the multiple colors I am used to when coloring up my image.  This digi image I used is called "Butterfly with Sunflower".  When I saw the image, I immediately wanted a vibrant color to use for the butterfly so I went with the color orange.  I did use different shades of orange to color both the butterfly and the sunflowers.  I used the Spellbinder "Labels Twenty Two" to die cut my image.  I wanted to add some additional color around my white card stock so I used my Ranger Ink blending tool to add some Tim Holtz distress ink in "Marigold" around the image.  After using Kraft card stock as a base, I added some orange design paper from the collection "Apple Cider" from Bo Bunny.  This paper matched so well with the colors I used. I also added some orange flower lace trim I had in my stash to the bottom of the card.  The flower is made from Kraft tissue paper and I used the MFT "Rolled Daisy" to make it.  Because It was so soft, I layered and cut out 4 pieces before I started to roll.  I took a white rose bud from I am Roses and sprayed it with Lindy Stamp Gang's "Hogwart's Orange" to add to the middle of the flower with that extra orange color.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.  The sentiment is from an MFT "Sentimental About Butterflies" stamp set.  I thought it was perfect for my card.  Hope you enjoyed my "Krafty" project for the challenge and thanks again for all the sweet comments you leave on my blog! I love reading each and every one of them and they really make my day so special! :)
