Embellish Coloring Color Trends Challenge

Here's the challenge...
...and here's my card...
I stamped the butterflies with VersaMark, then rubbed colored chalk across each image.  The other butterfly was heat embossed.
This card is actually the 4th one I made for this challenge - the other three just didn't fulfill the challenge deets. 

Card #1 - I had intentions to include the challenge colors on my daughter's birthday card, but the card kinda took off on it's own (the little girl LOVES pink). 

Card# 2 - I thought I had done it with this card, but then it occurred to me that I had left off one of the colors.  I could have added an embellish, but I liked how it looked as is.

Card #3...where is it you ask?...let's just say it was one of those cards that just didn't turn out how I had envisioned in my mind.  In fact, soooo far off, it's not even going to make it on this blog :-)  

Live well,

  1. They're all so pretty , Trina. I love the butterfly card you did for challenge, such pretty colors.

  2. Your butterflies are wonderful! Love the idea ob Versamark and chalk. Thanks for sharing ...

    Happy Birthday to the "big girl" 4 year old!

  3. I love all three of the cards you've posted and I'm sure that the one that didn't make the cut you will have learnt something from.
    The butterfly card is especially pretty.
