Stampin'B Challenge #51 - Color challenge

As hostess this week, I asked everyone to make a card using purple, yellow and green. I wanted to make something a little different, so I made an Easter trifold pocket card, using the tutorial in the Resources section of Splitcoaststampers.

My card base is two-sided designer series paper from Stampin’ Up. I stamped the butterfly from the Spring and Easter 2010 set from Mark’s Finest Papers: Speedy the Cat Collection and sponged on the yellow and purple ink. I also stamped it onto a piece of MFP Naturals Ivory and cut it out using circle nesties, popping on the cut-out butterfly. The band around the pocket card is Basic Grey’s Wisteria DP, matted in Momma’s Favorite Purple. The lily (from the same set as the butterfly) on the insert is colored with Copic markers. I added a small band across the bottom, a punched-out butterfly on the tab at the top, and the Easter sentiment.
