Beautiful You

How gorgeous are these colours for Kristina's challenge? Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla! Yummy!
I had this idea for a simple layout....bunching all the elements together all in one spot, I really like how it turned out! I stamped the background by combining three clear stamps on one block, inking with Regal Rose then really roughly stamping off once before stamping onto the Pretty in Pink.

The gorgeous sentiment from Verve was embossed with clear embossing powder. The butterfly was stamped on vellum cardstock with Chocolate Chip stamped off a few times.

Loved this combo, don't be surprised if you see another card from me soon using the same colours!
