Live, Laugh, Love......CREATE!

So I find myself really drawn to the images created my Michelle Perkett, and have been looking forward to joining in with the challenge over at her blog since Tuesday, but had to wait for my DH to bring me some stash today so I could get started!

The theme is to use turquoise and brown, and that's one of my all-time fave colour combos, so I emailed him some images to print and bring with him, and almost as soon as he arrived I got cracking!!!

I already knew what I wanted to do, although for what seemed like an easy card, it took a lot longer and was a lot more fiddly than I had imagined it would be to make!

I used a freebie of called Butterfly Create and printed it 4 times. The original has the word 'create' but I changed it on 3 of them to the words 'live,' 'love,' and 'laugh.' I coloured them Promarkers (Caramel, Cinnamon & Duck Egg.)

My papers are Pink Petticoat Little Swirls which are matted and layered, I added a few card candy dots to complete.

So, I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
