A Splash of Blue

Happy Monday! I'm working into that it-doesn't-really-matter-what-day-it-is that is the teacher's summer. If only the cat would figure out that it's OK that the sun is up and I'm not...

The Play Date Cafe had a fun color challenge this week. Black and white and a splash of blue. I had to take a fail at first because I did it with a splash of pink! How many times a day do I say, "Read the directions!"? LOL! So, back to the drawing board, and here it is:
The backgrounder is from CHF. I loooove this Unity butterfly from a set of beautiful 'flies! The sentiment is from Verve. (Gee. That's most of the major companies. Too bad I didn't have a Bella or something from MFT!)
The 'fly is inked with Broken China Distress Ink. I used  Briliance for the black background. Ribbon is grossgrain.

Here's the original. I think I'll save it for Unity FWF this week.

The only difference is that I stamped the butterfly with Adirondack Watermelon and pink CS.

Have a wonderful week! Thank you so much for stopping by!
