365 Cards Challenge Day 95

Boy, today's challenge at 365 Cards was really tough. The challenge was to use pink, orange and blue as your primary colors in your card for today. I must tell you that these three colors are NOT my favorite. I had to really think about it. Every shade of these colors either looked dirty or reminded me of a bad 70's pillow design. After struggling for a bit, I decided to go with Stampin Up! In Color inks of Tangerine Tango, Pink Pirouette, Pacific Point and Baja Breeze. I resorted back to my old standby technique of using a baby wipe to blend the colors for the butterflies. Well, not my favorite card....but I met the challenge!

I used the following materials to make this card:

SU Tangerine Tango cardstock
SU Baja Breeze cardstock
SU Pink Pirouette cardstock
SU Tangerine Tango inker
SU Baja Breeze inker
SU Pink Pirouette inker
SU Pacific Point inker
Baby wipe
SU Bold Butterfly stamp set
