1 Card -- 2 Challenges

Don't you love it when one card works for more than one challenge?  I sure do.  My card is for both Make It Monday #205 (Confetti Cluster Stamping) and Color Throwdown #334 (use pink, orange and navy blue).

I originally was using a white card base and outlined the two butterflies, but as I was stamping the confetti, I was making a mess on my white card base.  I thought I was being careful, but not so much, so I ending up cutting both butterflies out.  I also think I used too many of the confetti stamps inked with Stampin' Up's Pink Pirouette ink, as my background looks more pink than just confetti.  I also used SU's Night of Navy and Tangerine Tango with the confetti stamps.  The confetti stamps came from the following PaperTrey Stamp sets, Country Fair, Shakers & Sprinkles, Sparkle & Shine and Friendly Flowers.

I used SU's Blushing Bride, Night of Navy and Tangerine Tango card stock and put the Night of Navy and Tangerine Tango through SU's Honeycomb embossing folder.  I stamped Happy Birthday (PTI's Keep It Simple: Birthday Mini Stamp Set) in SU's Night of Navy ink on a banner of SU's Blushing Bride card stock and pop dotted up the butterflies and the happy birthday banner.  To finish the card off, I added some pearls to the butterflies.  

 Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the beautiful cards over at Make It Monday and Color Throwdown.
