CFC #13 A Touch of Colour

Time goes by quickly - especially as we get closer to Christmas - it is time for the next Crafty Friends Challenge - are you ready??!
I love the challenges the Design Team are bringing each fortnight but these girls are really making it hard for me lately - all this white and CAS cards - arghhhh! LOL!  I am a layers and 'not so CAS' girl, but just quietly, am enjoying the challenge of making the cards simpler - but shhh - don't tell Beate and the girls! LOL!
Charmaine has challenged us to make a white card with a splash of color - shouldn't be too hard - LOL!
I have used the adorable Butterfly Kisses image by NinaB Designs for The Craft's Meow.  I have heat embossed her in Tsukineko White Embossing Powder and sponged around the image using a rose coloured ink, to add that little bit of colour.  The image is hand cut and layered onto the Spellbinders Floral Ovals Nestabilities®, a second wing image has been added and popped up of foam tape.  My Die has been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.
The bottom layer had been embossed using the Spellbinders Mystic M-Bossabilities™ Folder.
White Seam Binding has been used for the double bow and a pink button added, with the addition of a Want2Scrap  Creme pearl.  Want2Scrap Creme pearls have also been added around the Spellbinders Floral Ovals Nestabilities®, and one to the centre of the Dandelion.
A quick and easy card and I am happy with all of the white - which is a pleasant surprise to me! LOL!
