Perfectly Rustic Colour Combo

So its time for a new challenge over at Perfectly Rustic and this time its a colour challenge. Ever since I saw this Papertrey Ink die and stamp set I have wanted to use it, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity. So with that in mind I have done a very simple get well card for my Nana. 

House of Borowski, Papertrey ink life is beautiful stamp and die.

Card Tip:

I have die cut the butterflies twice, one in the green and one in the espresso. I then adhered the green butterfly on top of the brown butterfly but slightly to the side which gives a shadow effect.

Card Ingredients:

Card Stock: craft A5 card base, espresso card stock and glitter green card stock from stash.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink life is beautiful stamp set
Ink: Memento rich cocoa
Dies: Papertrey Ink life is beautiful die set
Other:green gems
