Eclectic Thank You for the SCS Color Challenge Design Team

Hi there again!  Tonight's post is for my final turn as a guest member of the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge Design Team.  It has been so fun working with the wonderful members on the CC design team and a joy to create with all the lovely colors each week.

This week's colors use 2 of the new Stampin' Up! 2015-2017 In Colors - Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush, plus Hello Honey, which is one of the current 2014-2016 In Colors.

The new In Colors are very bright, so I wanted to keep my card fairly CAS with plenty of white space.  I used SC545 as the basis for my layout, although I added an element with the sentiment on the bottom right.

I started with the sun from Kinda Eclectic, stamped in Hello Honey, then topped it with a 3 layer butterfly.  The bottom and top layers are Vellum, with a layer of Watermelon Wonder in between.  I was actually going to just use one layer of Vellum, but the first butterfly I cut tore as I was trying to remove it from one of the Butterfly framelits.  Darn!  So I cut a second one to use on top but figured the tear would not be visible under the card stock layer, so it went on the bottom.  I like the effect!

The leaves were stamped in Cucumber Crush, cut out with my paper snips. the layered under the sentiment.  A few splatters on each side of the main image and some sequins, and my card was done!

Thanks for taking time to visit today and I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!  Please use the links above and come join us for the Color Challenge or play along with the Sketch Challenge (even though it is from nearly 2 weeks ago, there is no deadline, so you can upload your card any time).  Have a great week!!
