Colour Create Challenge # 1

I'm so excited....the moment has arrived....the first challenge for Colour Create.
Here is this week's colour scheme...

The optional extra is to use butterflies if you would like to. Here is my card......

This is very different from anything I've ever done, not least because the only embellishment I've used is a butterfly......none of the things I usually use such as ribbon, buttons, flowers etc......
The background stamp is Melissa Frances, and the little butterfly is Anita's. The sentiments are by Impression Obsession, Hero Arts and The Stampman.
I was amazed how many butterfly related stamps I had when I looked, and some had never been used before....so it was great that Colour Create made me dust off these stamps and use them for the first challenge.
I'm really looking forward to seeing your take on this week's challenge...and there's some great blog candy on offer this week so what are you waiting for??...and do check out the blog for fantastic ideas from the rest of the Design Team...
