This is for the CC395 - Perfect Plum, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party for the dessert option. These colors were really difficult for me and I am not thrilled with my card. I also made this for this week's FBW challenge will will be posted n Wednesday.
I haven't seen the Summer Starfruit in real life but I think the color in the DCWV Mariposa patterned paper has a close color and has the pool party color as well. I stamped the cone flowers and butterfly onto that patterned paper and colored the image in with Distress markers and Spica Glitter pens. I used circle nestabilities and cut out a glittered butterfly that was on the same patterned paper.

Don't be so hard on yourself! This is nice and I love the sparkle.
