Color Throwdown Challenge #100

Congratulations to the ladies at Color Throwdown!  They have achieved 100 challenges!  That's quite an accomplishment, and they're celebrating with a blog hop and some fantastic giveaways!   I believe this is my first entry into this challenge; better late than never!  Here are the colors we were to use:
Pretty, aren't they?  Those pastels are some of my favorites, but the red threw me for a loop.  So I started with adding red buttons to each flower, and then the little strip of red, and went all out with the butterflies......a rule from my quilting days is if you use a color at least 3 times and spread it throughout, it usually works.  What do you think?  


Supplies: Hero Arts CL184 Thoughtful Messages (flower), CL151 Share Laughter (butterflies), CL371 Essential Messages, Frances Meyer printed paper, Bobunny and Bazzill dotted cardstock, red cardstock, Denami buttons
