Colors of The Rainbow.......

Hi All....
Today my post below is on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog
we have a great challenge going.....
I hope you will "pop" on over, see what it's about and join us!!

Hello Classy Friends!!
Diane here with you today sharing my card for our weekly challenge
and hopefully inspiring you to play along!!

This weeks challenge is "Colors of The Rainbow".....
Lots of wonderful colors to brighten your day!

I had this card in mind for quite some time...
I have to say it is slightly bigger then  a business size envelope....
Good  thing I have the WeR Memory Keepers envelope maker..
 I can easily make an envelope to fit!

I have been purchasing some of the most gorgeous card stocks from Beverly...
Wonderful quality, gorgeous colors, and a nice very sturdy weight...
I cut  all my butterflies from these gorgeous papers using 
 my "new" Joy Butterfly Trio die, using the largest size of the three..
I will list all the colors of the papers at the end of my post with the links for your convenience!!

The stamp I used in also a "newly" just purchased item that Beverly has started to carry.
It is from Impression Obsession stamps "Leap of Faith"...love it,
these stamps are a wonderful "cling" quality!

My card was built on a shimmery white card stock which was mounted onto 
Banana Split-Pop Tone acid free 100# card stock,  
the yellow butterfly was cut from the same.

Other papers used for the butterflies are:
Bluebell Stardream Metallic acid free 110# card stock
Mandarin Curious Metallic acid free111# cardstock
Stardream Jupiter Metallic acid free 105# card stock
Stardream Punch Metallic acid free 105# card stock

I hope you will join in with our challenge this week!!
I would "love" to see "you" there!!

What a great sentiment and a pretty card with all those colorful butterflies! I simply have to get a butterfly die or punch, or something. Love that you were able to make an envelope to fit this size. I love tall cards, but the business size envelopes need a lot of dressing up to look good.
