CR84FN Color Challenge

Hi everyone!  My posts have been lacking again.  We have been having floorboards renewed in all of our bedrooms and the landing.  I haven't been able to get to my craft room, which has been a pain.  Anyhow, everything was put back again yesterday, so I managed to make a card today for the CR84FN Color Challenge.
Here is my card...



My card base is Kraft. I added a mat of white card which has been embossed using the faux letterpress technique. I used a Spellbinders label twenty for my focal point, I stamped this with a stamp from the Fleur De Lis set by JustRite stamps. I have used  Pearlescent Orchid ink by Brilliance on my background, label and roses. The flourish is the Tropical Flourish by Cheery Lynn designs.  I cut this and my butterfly from Kraft card and then stamped over them with white acrylic paint.

That's all for today folks.
Thanks for stopping by xx
