Just Us Girls Challenge #21

Soooo...today is Saturday which means it's high time for another challenge with Just Us Girls!!!  JUGS21 is being hosted by sweet, Bon-Jovi LOVIN', Maria.  She chose this unique palette for her color challenge:

...and here is my take on the palette.
Yep...there's a splash of raspberry on the card.  Note the button if you haven't already :]  LOL  I CASEd one of Bar Anders' cards in her SCS gallery.  Translation...my VERY belated entry for the featured stamper challenge that honored Bar while I was in Florida :] 
I made this flower after viewing a quick and simple tutorial on Chat's blog.  Isn' it cool?  I created a cut file to get just the right flower for the technique...I think it hit the nail square on the head!

I stamped the All A Flutter butterfly in SU! Chocolate Chip ink twice, cut them out and colored the wings with Copics.  I layered them on the sentiment panel in an offset pattern to make it almost appear to be fluttering.

Please be sure to swing by our amazing DTs' blogs for some jaw dropping inspiration!  Their links are in my left sidebar <----------  Don't forget our sweet February guest designer, Chupa!!  She has been such a great addition this month :]

Welp...that's about all I have for now.  I'm off to bed in five...Tia has her state high school gymnastics competition tomorrow where she will compete on Vault.  Crossing my fingers and toes as I type.  I really hope it goes well for her tomorrow.  She has been in a rut recently :[

Tee hee, I see that we chose to use the same element for the splash of raspberry! :)
Kristin, you're an awesome crafter, and your work is always stunning. This card is no different - I just love everything about it!
On top of this - I'm a sucker for big flowers and bows!
