{Embellish} color challenge with ric-rac


Are these colors not scrumptious together?  These are the colors chosen for the latest {Embellish} challenge, with the added element of ric-rac.  I dialed the colors up to the max; here is my entry:


I used Bazzill and BoBunny dotted papers for my orange and turquoise, and brown cardstock to frame everything.  The butterfly is a dimensional K&Co Grand Adhesion by Susan Winget.  I'm sorry it doesn't show up better, but it has a layer of acetate and turquoise glitter, really pretty.  I added the flight pattern with a Hero Arts stamp and studded it here and there with orange gems.  The ric-rac is also a stamp (on the reverse of the dotted paper) which was trimmed out.  I love this sentiment, a PSX stamp from 1999 I just found this spring at a stamp swap. 

Supplies: turquoise, orange, brown and kraft papers, Memories Artprint Brown ink, K&Company Grand Adhesions butterfly sticker, PSX G-1889, HA CL377 Be Happy (butterfly flight), F3351 Rickrack Ribbon, orange gems
