I love color challenges and knew I had the colors for the current CAS Colors & Sketches challenge. The colors are Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze all Stampin Up Regal Colors.
I used stamps and dies from My Favorite Things for the butterflies and greeting, Spread Your Wings. As I looked I found we had very old inks for each of these colors and two of the markers, one of which is almost worn out. I used matching cardstock to cut the butterfly base. I inked the butterflies with Versamark ink and either the SU ink pad, marker, or a substitute color. I substituted Faded Brick by Gina K Designs for Cajun Craze. It is not an exact match but worked well inked on vellum and placed over the cardstock. The patterned paper is a retired set in the pumpkin pie color. I added a few gems from my stash and called the card complete.

Love those butterflies. This would definitely help anyone have a beautiful day.
Thanks! This set arrived on Saturday so I had to use it.
This is beautiful – made me smile!
Thanks! Glad it brought a smile to your face.
Your efforts to add all the layers to your butterflies really paid off. The colors seemed a bit autumnal but now they look like summer.
Yes, they are often Autumn colors. I am glad they look more Summery. Thanks!
Great take on the color challenge and adding those butterflies definitely gave your card a summer vibe. So very pretty.
What a bright and beautiful card Lisa! Not colors I would generally work with, but you made a fantastic card with them.
Thanks! I saw Autumn and I really wanted something more fun and the butterflies arrived on my door on Saturday, so they were calling to be used.
They were perfect!
Great card. Those little butterflies are soooo sweet.
The butterfly set is a cute set. There are 4 butterflies in the set and I only used one here. Will have to create something else with all of them. Thanks!
This looks great. A perfect layout to include the colors for the challenge.

Thank you! The butterflies arrived on Saturday and they seemed perfect to use with these colors.
