Cameo Spotlight Challenge!

I was recently asked by the sweet Jackie, to be a Guest Designer over at the Cameo Spotlight...Yay!!


How fun!  I was so excited when she told me the challenge details, I rushed to by table...and computer...to make this card...

I bought these shapes while back from the Silhouette site and was so excited to put them to use.  I layered the hexagon card to the card base with foam tape and then added in a little of the sage green color behind.  The butterfly I cut out with black polka dot paper...the dots are a dark gray color...and then layered vellum behind.  Can you believe those antennae?  The Cameo cut out that small detail SO well!  

Here are the challenge details...


It's all about color this time.  You need to use Slate, Beige and Sage in your card.  Black and white are OK to use too!  (I used kraft for the beige color and the dark gray or slate is in the polka dots on the butterfly and I also used Smokey Shadow ink for the sentiment....not totally slate but as close as I could come up with!)

I can't wait to see all the Cameo creations this week!  I know the DT has lots of fun stuff for us to see. Go check it out over at the Cameo blog and then link up your creations.  Thanks for stopping in!

ETA: In my CAS-ual Fridays post, I used a chevron embossing folder and didn't add a link. (Click HERE to see that card) I have had lots of comments and emails about where to get this fabulous folder....click HERE to check it out!
