    Gray, chocolate, cream and gold with a sketch challenge to put it all together.
This sketch is from Die Cuttin' Diva's (sketch below) 
     I started with white card stock.  I blended Pumice Stone, Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs, Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo onto the paper.  I then cut the scrolled butterfly by Simon Says from that combo.  On cream and grey card stock       I cut the full butterfly from Simon Says and then sprayed them with Walnut Stain.
From a left over piece of gold I cut the strip to fit the base and then edged it with a Fiskars punch.
Celebrate was stamped with a Recollections stamp with VersaMark and gold embossing powder. 
This was all set in place on a lite gray cs then set onto a darker gray top fold base.

Here is the sketch for you from Die Cuttin' Divas that I would like to add to the challenge.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges if I may:

Color Throwdown - Gray, cream and black

Tuesday Throwdown - Silver or Gold
The House that Stamps Built - with wings
4 Crafty Chicks - ATG with a die
Dies R Us - ATG.

Thank you for stopping by ... wishing you all a wonderful day.
