Color Cue challenge

OK... so I have been a busy bee browsing through loads of blogs and links... and came across this challenge via another blog... seen so many.. I forgot which one... anyway.. the challenge was to use the following colors:

I think I was totally attracted to the color palette... they looked like yummy ice cream or something...and I thought... how soft and friendly... so I tried my hand at it...
The fabulous thing is... I used all off cuts for this card except the Kraft card which I bought at a really great price!

I started with the  white off cut... (of which I have loads..LOL) and used my Hampton Art lilac and turquoise ink pad. Inked up one of my all time favourite butterfly (2572F winged angel)  Penny Black stamps with both colors and just randomly stamped this as a background. Folded the craft card stock for the main base of the card and layered it with the turquoise card. This layering of color is also great for a scrapbook page background...
A leftover of lilac was put thru my wizard with the wording cuttle bug folder and I swished over & inked the sides with some  weathered wood distress ink & layered this on the left side of the card.
glittered up some of the background butterflies and added the lace to the underside of the bottom of the white off cut. Layered this over the lilac strip

Close up on the focal image. I stamped this in the same way on some curious metal ice white card (also an off cut) and over stamped it with a lighter turquoise Hampton art ink pad and one of my Hero arts word stamps. Layered it onto an off cut of lilac and then onto an off cut of turquoise which I cut out with my oval nestibilities.  I added some diamond stickles  - after all we all love a bit of bling.

To finish I added 3 pearls as an accent.... the lace was stuck below the white  background stamped  card. I just love cotton lace... Oh...I did stamp a background on the Kraft card initially, which is just visible on the right side here... but most of the card was covered anyway...

the final product... 

I realised you couldn'st see the Kraft part of the card in the other images... so took another pic...hope this one is better.... ;p)

thanks for popping round
have a blessed and stampendous week end ahead.
