Blues and Turquoises - Take 2

While trying to find the right sentiment for my first card at Kathy's Palette Challenge at Lily Pad, I came across my butterfly inchies and knew I wanted to use them on a much simpler card.

June CCC Challenge

This months Lily Pad CCC really was a challenge for me  . . . the colours were not ones I use very often (well at least not together)

May Arts Ribbon Challenge at Lily Pad
