More Colour.

I have some more cards  
to show you for the 2nd week of

The challenge runs until next Tuesday.

On this first card I have made a tent fold base
using red card stock and then cut a slightly smaller 
square of kraft card which I have adhered to the front.
I used an SU butterfly punch to cut the butterflies
from  scraps of various multi coloured design papers
and arranged these to fully cover the kraft card
I popped different coloured pearls on each one 
and added a blue ribbon  for aditional trim.

This card uses Kraft card to make the base card
I cut a smaller piece of card in cream and then used 
strips of coloured card for the colours of the rainbow
 and adhered them in the correct order vertically on the card.
I used gold sticker edging between the colours.
Butterflies are punched using a smaller SU butterfly punch
and trimmed with more of the gold edging and gold pearls.
Arranged over the front as if in flight.
Wording is a Britannia die cut from gold and cream card
c and layered slightly off each other to give a shadow effect.

I would like to enter this card into the follow challenges:
Robyn's Fetish #331 Anything goes.
Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends #40 Anything goes.
Inspiration Destination #101 Anything goes.

Through The Craftroom Door # Anything goes.
Deep Ocean Challenge #136 Things with wings.
Love To Craft #2 Anything goes.

My last card was the most time consuming but I love the result. 

I used pale yellow cardstock  to make the base and then
adhered a slightly smaller piece of Kraft  card to the front.
I die cut the pink card using  Crafts-Too  Stitch  Hole Rectangle
Before attaching to the kraft card I coloured round the edge of the kraft card
that would be left showing with a promarker  grey green pen .
It gives a lovely subtle shading to the kraft card.
The butterfly Striplet +added butterflies is by Sue Wilson called
'Butterflies In Flight'
I cut this out in Kraft card again using the marker pen to colour
and also in white card stock.
I then coloured all the individual pieces from the white card
using variious promarkers and then inlaid them into the kraft card
to give the stained glass window effect.  The left over pieces
from the kraft card were coloured to match and glued  to the top
of the individual butterflies for added dimension.
I used silver sticker edging around the striplet and a muli coloured
sticker for the sentiment.

Wow, look at how much you got done since Norm and Sammy are gone! These are great cards. What a pretty way to use up scraps on your first card. I love the gold added between the layers on the second and that third card is a labor of love.

Wow wow wow!!! Three fab cards and ideas!! The first one is beautiful, great use of little scraps for these colourful butterflies! The last looks gorgous, LOVE the stained glass effect you have had with your markers!!
My favourite is the second one, and I pinned it! So clever use strips of scraps to make the background and then cover the edges with ric-rac stickers!! The kraft butterfies give some elegance to the whole card!
Very well done for all!
