Bashful Butterfly Serenity

This card was inspired by the color challenge (#213) today at SplitCoastStampers.  The colors are bashful blue, close to cocoa, and so saffron.

I got close to the colors of this particular butterfly—they are not in perfect placement because my mind got creative with them between looking at pictures of them online (upstairs) and my studio (downstairs).  THIS was the picture that inspired me.  But that is the beauty of stamping---they can be ANY colors that I want to use.
