Today's card manages to combine two challenges - Case Study and Color Throwdown. Reminder to self - do this more often. I wanted to use my new Uniko Studio Flower Power #1 stamp set and love how delicate it's turned out. I tried several sizes of butterflies, but finally plumped for three tiny ones as they seemed to match the size and feel of the flower stamp best. I then added a few embossed lines to highlight the diagonal aspect of the sketch - can't tell you how tricky that was! Lovely colour combination that once again would not have occurred to me, but then that's what I love about these challenges - makes you try new things.

I'm doing Shimelle's Learn Something New Every Day during September too - a sort of philosophical look at life's little lessons. So yesterday I took this photo:
Thanks for looking.
