my tiger lily

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. This is a short post today.

It was a long but a very fulfilling day. Ever have one of those?

My card for today is one I made for the color challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week our hostess was Betty Wright and she chose a very elegant color combo. We used concord crush, crumb cake and ivory.

I used a tiger lily image from the rubber cafe. I bought this image for some wedding invitations that I am making. I decided to ink it up with the challenge colors. I like the rich color of concord crush.

I used some crumb cake designer paper from Stampin-Up's "deck the halls" collection.  My ribbon is concord crush as well as the butterfly I punched with the Martha Stewart punch.

The layout on this card is from the Wednesday sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. Although, I did take some liberty with the layout. That's the reason I added the butterfly in a circle and the 2 faux brads in the corner.

That's it for today my friends. So until next time.................

Here are a few other challenges I am entering:
1.  The top tip Tuesday blog has an open challenge.
