My SU Demo found me a couple of packages of the now retired Bashful Blue which I just love love love - especially for Christmas Cards! She's the best so this card is going to her!!
This week's sketch SC437 has a big bow in it - so you know I'm playing along! I also used the colour challenge CC427. I don't have any Marina Mist, so I substituted Bashful Blue.
All my panels are matted with Early Espresso. My Bashful Blue panel was run through an embossing folder. And then I found some co-ordinating dp from Recollections. I punched out 3 butterflies and added small brown pearls for their bodies.
And then finally, I added a big Cherry Cobbler bow from my favourite SU striped ribbon. It is just so wonderful to work with and I'm getting quite a collection of colours!!
Thanks for taking a peek!

I love that color combo Laurie!! Isn't it sad that bashful blue is being retired? I'm suffering from withdrawal :) Your card is so beautiful especially with that big ol' gorgeous bow!!!!!
