I was realy hesitant when I saw the colours this week:
but as I began to play I realise that I LOVE them! That's the best part about these challenges they make you step out of your comfort zone & you find yourself discovering fab new combos etc.
I really wanted to make a card with Ice-Creams or Chocolate - mmm Strawberry Cream Chocies. Didn't have anything remotely like it so here's my card for this challenge.
I'm a sucker for PINK and Birdies so I course I love this card. LOL

I really struggled - this card has had so many metamorphasis 's LOL. So many stamp sets were used in it's creation to finally only showcase a sentiment from flight of the Butterfly. Still it's a sweet card & was able to use a scrap of crumb cake that I'd previously run through a friends Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Gotta love using those scraps in the basket.
