Sunflower & Butterfly ~ CMCC66

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It's time for a new Colour Me challenge.  This week we have the cheery duo of Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight.  
As I was searching my stash of DSP for this polka dotted pattern, I came across a bit of yellow gingham.  Don't you just love a polka dot/gingham combination?!?  It's so country.  After finding my paper, I decided on a sunny sunflower and fun butterfly to compliment the papers.  I used an old Sizzix die called Daisies #2.  I cut two flowers and sponged the tips.  I added a circle of Early Espresso and another little circle of Baked Brown Sugar polka dotted DSP to complete the flower's center.  I added the pleasant little blue butterfly from {Kinda Eclectic}.  I thought the crosshatch pattern on the butterfly complimented the gingham and polka dots.  

I used a pretty basic sketch that's been seen lots and lots but never gets old!  I used a bit of Fancy Foil Vellum for my large banner.  I didn't want to cover up the gingham too much!  A little bit of doily, some gold sequins (to tie in the gold vellum) and some pearls on the butterfly body complete this summery little number!

Make sure to stop by the blogs of my fellow CM designers. You will have tons of inspiration!!!!
