It's true. I've very orange challenged! I mean, I really like what others do with it...but I can never get it to look right!! So, when I saw what the colors were for Verve's May Project Parade Challenge, I knew I was in trouble! The Project Parade Challenge this month is a "Summertime" Color Challenge: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky (or Bashful Blue), Regal Rose (or Cameo Coral), & Old Olive (optional).
I did try to incorporate Pumpkin Pie into my card....I really did!! Once again, I just couldn't get it to look right. Now, before you go telling on me to Julee (owner of Verve), I did actually use just a tiny bit of Pumpkin Pie! I colored the butterfly with a Pumpkin Pie colored Copic marker!! LOL!
I embossed one of the small flowers from Floral Whimsyin white on all three background panels. I then layered a few circles (cut/embossed with my Circle Nestabilties). The butterfly (from Fluttering By) and the two larger flowers are embossed, colroed with Copics, & cut out.
If you haven't already joined in the Project Parade fun this month, there is still time to play!! Check out THIS post for all the details! The winner is going to receive $15 of FREE Verve Bucks!!
