CC167: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Certainly Celery

I like Blue Bayou but I never seem to just grab for it when working on cards. The color challenge today forced me to put a neglected color to use so I quickly decided to make it a dominant color with today's card. The butterfly is from Kind Thoughts and was first stamped in Soft Sky on the white panel. I stamped it again on a scrap of white using the Blue Bayou and then cut it out and attached it in the center so that the wings would be able to pop up a bit. I added some bling in the center that was as 'Certainly Celery' as I could find. It didn't seem to be enough Celery so I decided to incorporate the wide grosgrain as well. Can I just say that I love wide grosgrain ribbon? My narrow grosgrain is being completely neglected these days because I just love the look of the wider ribbon and tend to reach for it anytime I'm wanting to incorporate ribbon. Well, I have to finish setting up for tonight's Stamp-a-Stack so I must get to work! Thanks for stopping by!
