Not sure about this one?

Morning, happy Friday everyone!

How I wish I worked normal Monday to Friday hours, I work most Saturdays and there's just no excitement to the week when you get days off here and there :o( Well that's my moan for the day lol on to my card... I'm not sure about this one, it certainly doesn't look like it did in my head when I started it!

I'm entering it into the Colour Create Challenge # 50 which is to use hot pink, warm orange and saffron with an optional extra of adding butterflies.
The papers are freebies from a magazine, I love them and the colours and to make tham stand out a bit more I inked the edges of the darker pink strips with green ink. The butterfly has been inked (was originally white) with a hot pink ink pad, attached with glosy accents and then sticky gems added to the body. I then added some little orange butterfly gems and a sentiment from my stash. I don't know what I was expecting but there's just something I'm not happy with.

Hmm, let me know what you think
Have a good day, Hayley x

  3. not sure why you don't like it, I think it's gorgeous! I love that butterfly and you've got the colours spot on, if it makes you feel better, I set the colour challenge and was amazed my own creation came out so 'un-pink'!!!

    Thanks so much for joining in at Colour Create
