Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge

This is my first time trying the Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge

I love the brown and mustard but didn't know how I would work pink in. I really like how this turned out though. It was inspired by Dawn McVey's card here.

I used the Best Blossom SAB set from SU! for the leaves and pulled out my leafy branch CB embossing folder. The tone on tone embossing doesn't show up well in the photo, but the pattern is very similar to the stamped image IRL.

I decided to use my Friends til the End patterned paper in Hibiscus Burst and my new Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die from SU! I cut out a mustard color butterfly as well then stamped the Friends til the End blossom on it in chocolate.

I finished off the middles with vintage buttons from PTI tied with linen thread.
