ISSC06 and CR84FN50 Colour Challenge - Happy Birthday

Hi and welcome back to my blog.  This week a new colour challenge was launched over at CR84FN and boy did I have to rack my brain for this one!  Initially I thought it was going to be easy, but once I started looking through my paper stash I realised that one of the colours was not featured very heavily at all.  So here is the colour challenge:

I had a cute patterned pink (MME Stella & Rose), and could find a lovely yellow spot to compliment it (MME On the Bright Side) but where oh where were some oranges to finish off the trio? Not many to choose from at all - guess I'm not a fan of orange.  Eventually I settled on a muted orange patterned paper from MME Vanity Fair.

Once I had the colour challenge sorted I decided to use it for my iSpy sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch:

And finally, here is my finished card:

I love the fishtail banner from my MFT Die-namics collection.  I teamed this up with a Carl punch to get the cute heart to finish it off.

The greeting was a rub-on.

The central embellishment was created with a 2" scallop circle and a 1 3/4" circle punch.  The butterfly was another MFT die namics die.  Just love this one!  I finished the butterfly off with a Green Tara mini rosebud.  I also spun the background paper around to add a little additional detail.

And here is the card standing up.

Paper -  MME Vanity Fair, On the Bright Side, Stella and Rose.
Dies -    MFT Die-namics fishtail banner and butterfly trio.
Other - Green Tara flower, organza ribbon, crochet cotton, and rub ob.
