Cards Galore Challenge "colour inspiration"

Hello everyone...

It is once again the start of a new month, where does the time go???, and that means that today, the new challenge on Cards galore challenge blog goes live.

This months theme is "Colour Inspiration"
 And this is the colours for you to use:


You are also allowed to use white, but these are the main colours to be used.

Here is my DT card for this challenge:

For this card I used plain card stock, in 3 colours, and a sheet of patterned paper from the "scrumptious" paper pack from Papermania
The plain card stock is simply just mattet and layered on top of each other. I then cut the patterend paper to fit the next layer, but instead, I tiltet it a bit.
First though, I sanded the edges and distressed them with a distressing tool.
Once the patterend layer was stuck down I put a strip of clear glue around the edges and dropped the beads into the glue at a random. Once dry I slightly rolled the edges in.
I die cut the butterfly and added that and the greeting. Finished off with a few gems, and Voila... 
Card Done..

Before I go, I want to remind you all that we are starting a brand new
