Butterfly Basics - vintage/ice cream colours

I had great fun with the Butterfly Basics stamp set and some butterfly dies and other bits n bobs!  I made several cards, some just in a different colour scheme, others with slightly different elements (ribbon, die cuts, jewels, pearls...)  but I love this one as the colours are just so pretty/vintage/ice-creamy!

Yet again I have used one of my favourite pinks - Melon Mambo - only downside of that one (and Blackberry Bliss) is that the inks do make a mess of your fingers! And they also stain your photopolymer stamps, but as long as you clean them properly this does not affect the colours you stamp next.

I am adding this card to the following:
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - #123 Anything Goes with a Twist - Add some pearls
A Bit More Time to Craft - #17 Anything Goes 
Cupcake Inspirations - #353 Photo Inspiration my inspiration was the pretty colours 

Stampin' Up! materials used:
Stamp sets - Butterfly Basics, Gorgeous Grunge
Inks - Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Old Olive
Dies - Bold Butterfly framelits, Butterflies thinlits
Ribbon - Mint Macaron dotted lace trim
Card - Whisper White A4 thick cardstock, Vellum
Embellishments - pearls
