Pretty colours

This is for this week's Daring cardmakers where this colour combo for May was given:

The colour inspiration for Just some lines is very similar:

It's also for Sketches by Carly 55::

Papers are Basic Grey - background is two scoops and the pink strips are bittersweet - from my scraps box, so another one for  Pixie's crafty snippets 19 .

Basic grey 67 is a recipe - 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments (lace, flowers, pearls).

The image is a Stampotique butterfly by Janet Klein, coloured with copics, cut out with a spiky nestie and edged with a copic. Lace, flowers and pearls from stash.
