Color Inspiration #151

I don't know what it is this week, but I've been having a blast exploring the Brights Color Collection. Secretly, I think it's my desire for Spring to just get here already. I know many of you feel the same's been a wild and crazy winter.

The color challenge for this week is Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.

As I was blog hopping this morning, I came across a Jessica Luther's tutorial for a funky fold card. It was just what I needed as my Just Cards class is being held this week......and I needed a funky fold design. Now that I knew what kind of card I wanted to make, I needed to design the theme of my card. Butterflies seemed the perfect choice. A butterfly makes a transformation from something not so pretty (at this point, how I feel about Winter) to something spectacular (my anticipation of Spring).

I've shared my project using these bright and beautiful colors. Now, it's your turn. We'd love to see what you make with this week's color challenge.

I've added the Linky Tool to the bottom of this post so you can copy the web address of your project to link to our blog.

  1. Just love your butterfly card. Put on the scallop card just makes it my kind of card. Ty for sharing. I need all the help I can get.

  2. This is wonderful! I'm going to try something similar and I'm definitely inspired by the color choices! Off to the crafting table!

  3. This is WAaay after the date of this post, I know, but I just wanted to say thanks for this colour combo. It helped me come up with a fun little card I would never have put together without the suggestion. Sometimes I need a little push to do something different. It is here if you want to take a look
