Fallen Hues

CMB challenge time!  This weeks colors are spectacular for fall.


Here's what I came up with:

 The stamp sets used are Kindness Matters and the sentiment is from Delightful Dozen.  There is a layer of Raspberry Ripple ribbon, a strip of Crumb Cake that is embossed with the Fancy Fan EF, and then the banner is stamped in Chocolate Chip - and I definitely had to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to do that!

 Here is a close up of the butterflies.

Each butterfly was stamped on the color of paper that it is stamped in then layered on top with another butterfly stamped on white with the color.  The middle butterfly is stamped in Perfect Plum.  The wings are slightly titled outward for a three dimensional effect.

I thought a  button from the Naturals Designer buttons added that perfect finishing touch.  There is Espresso Bakers twine and Linen thread tied to the button. Both the layer behind the butterflies and the get well sentiment are cut out using the Labels framelits.

Thanks for looking!
