Flashback Friday 12.0

Over on Flashback Friday, the current challenge is to show your first summer colours card.

I don't do a lot of bright summer colours, I have noticed I stick with pinks a lot ;-)  but here is a card that makes me feel bright and sunny whenever I look at it.

It was originally posted back in 2009 for the CraftMad May sketch challenge HERE.
the colour combinations I had chosen were influenced by ColourCreate challenge of blue & green. I would never have thought about using this colour combination, but I was cleaning out 'my stash' and they just fell out of the pile! It was then I remembered seeing the challenge on ColourCreate - so two birds with one stone!

coloured background paper was layered on white cardstock. Green circles were cut out and layered on background using mounting tape. Silver organza ribbon placed across middle and rub-on sentiment placed on top of ribbon. Blue pearls added. Blue padded butterflies added to side circles.

I quite like the simple layout of this card and it fits nicely with a new monthly challenge blog coming up - stay tuned!


  1. Blue and green go well together, a lovely card - I like the background paper too!

  2. Such a wonderfully summery the green {my fav color!} and the butterflies are a perfect way to top of your card! Thanks so much for playing with us at Flashback Friday!

  3. I like the background paper too. Thanks for playing along at Flashback Friday. Kathleen x

  4. Isn't Flashback Friday fun....I think it will help me learn what my style is. May save a few purchasing mistakes in the future. :-) This is a lovely card Cathy. Love the sentiment on the ribbon.

  5. I'm more of a muted-color girl myself. Wish I had more summery weather around here so we could have some of those butterflies grace us. Nice to "meet" you!
