It is time for a new challenge over at

So I would like to see  Kraft card used 
along with your Butterfly/ies of course.
If you use the optional colour then this time
it is to use multiple  colours as in a 

Here is my inspiration cards for you. 

1st card uses blue cardstock for the base.
I have used kraft card to die cut the window frame
which is  Crafts-Too Stitch hole Rectangle dies PCD98.
The image is by Hunkydory from their
Little Book of Shimmer which I have trimmed down
just very slightly so that is sits within the framework.
Butterfly is die cut using memory box Theo/ Whidbey
and kraft card.
Stickers and sentiment is a multicoloured sticker sheet.

2nd card used a pink base card and iridescent ribbon.
Image is from the same book as above along with the sentiment
Butterflies are multi coloured puffer stickers.
Image is adhered to the left over piece of kraft card from
the die cut used above. 

3rd card  is lilac cardstock used to make the base.
Kraft card and another piece of the lilac card are layered up
on top. The image is from the same Little Book of Shimer.
It has a covering of acetate which is adhered to the image using 
multi coloured brads.
 (from my recent win over at
Pixies Crafty workshop.)
Butterflies are Starform iridescent stickers
and the sentiment is glitterations.

Hope  these give you some idea of using multi colours on your project
and that you will play along with the challenge.. 
I'm looking forward to maybe seeing some mixed media
backgrounds on your projects.
Surprise me!!!!
