Colour Throwdown #34

Why does it take over 2 hours to make a simple card? I just couldn't decide what stamps to use or how to arrange the colours. I had patterned paper out, attempted to use CB folders, cut out the butterfly (twice) in Kiwi Kiss, and all sorts of other combinations - arrrggghhh! Total frustration with this one, let me tell you. I was just about fed up and almost ditched the challenge for the day but I hauled out Inspired by Nature (ya think I needed a little inspiration, huh?) and used Kiwi Kiss for the grass. I restamped the butterfly in Not Quite Navy and cut her out. I had already done the sentiment (twice) at the beginning of this whole process, so I was determined to keep it and use it somewhere. I edged the main panel with Blush Blossom and also used that as my card base. I brought in more Not Quite Navy behind the main image as well. Well, that's it! It should have taken me 10 minutes. I guess that's the way it goes sometimes...
