Bunting And Butterflies.


Thought I'd share a Grande Scalloped Nestability card today, I love mixing them with my smaller circles and cutting frames. It never fails to amaze me how much more classy the cuts look when they're also embossed. 
The colour scheme for this card came about because of the rather gorgeous packaging of a "Sanctuary Gift collection" I received a couple of years ago. The orange just popped when teamed with the red and black. I wasn't feeling quite brave enough here though so diluted the colours a little by adding a large dose of white. I promise that I'll be braver next time and keep the white out of the equation, I think the mix will benefit no end!  





I'm using this this card for the following challenges:-

SFTW, Dies and punches,
TP165, Shaped card,
WW103, Girly,
NAAC9, Wings,
TCC16, Female,
ASCB79, Birthday,
CC17, Shaped,
CCT267, Fly.

Thanks for stopping by,
