A Pink Elephant & Color Throwdown

It's been a crazy week once again in this household, but I won't bore you with details. I'll just get right to the card ;) I made this for a couple of challenges. The sketch comes from the Pink Elephant and the colors come from the Color Throwdown. I thought it was such an interesting sketch that I just had to play along. The colors from the Throwdown were Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, and an optional cream. I'm going to be honest. . .I wasn't sure about the colors, and I'm still not convinced on my card but the DT did some awesome stuff with the colors.

My main image is from a set called Beautiful Butterflies from Clear Dollar Stamps. I sponged some clouds onto a cream piece of cardstock and then stamped my butterfly with Garden Green. I then adhered some sticky tape all over the image and covered it with microbeads. It's just such a cool look.
