in a color rut….

I was looking through my gallery the other day and noticed that so many of my cards are in shades of blue and green, with the occasional pink thrown in.  

Realizing that I was in a color rut, I decided to go bold and red today.

This card is made with the beautiful patterned paper from the My Mind’s Eye – Lush series.  It’s the damask and floral paper on the card – both of which are flocked papers.  The red ribbon is also from My Mind’s Eye.

The butterfly is from Sweet n Sassy stamps and was colored with two shades of red copic markers – the closest reds I could find to match the paper.  I cut the image out and popped it up on the floral piece.

Nestability dies were used to cut the circles, a Papertrey die cut the scallop border.    The red textured cardstock is from Bazzill.

So – I’m out of my color rut, at least for this card!  I really like pop of color that red provides and will have to work more of it into my cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
