Colourful card challenge

Week 26 of the 52 cards challenge was a colour challenge - this picture was the inspiration.

 I picked out the peach and blue to make two birthday cards with a lovely Stamps Away butterfly and flower stamp.

I stamped the butterfly twice, cut it out and raised it up with pinflair gel for some dimension.

I embossed the circle of cardstock behind the stamped image with one of my favourite embossing folders Craft Concepts 'Garden Swirl'.  The papers are Hot Off the Press and the sentiment stamps are Kaisercraft and Hero Arts.

For the Christmas cards for this challenge I was inspired by the soft reds and green to make these two cards -

The stamp is from QVC and one of the very first Christmas stamps I ever bought.  The sentiment stamps are Kaisercraft and Hot Off the Press.  The die cut frames are Spellbinder dies and the paper is by Craft Creations.
