A Life that Touches the Heart of Others - CR84FN15

It's time for another wonderful color challenge from the CR84FN Blog!  Can you believe we are already on color challenge #15, we'd love having you play along.  This weeks fab colors are Teal, Green, and Yellow , such a beautiful color combination!

I don't normally make a habit of purchasing new product for challenges, as I try to use stuff I already have on hand, but on a recent trip to Michaels last week, I found these wonderful butterflies by Recollections. They were on sale for 40% off and fit the colors perfectly this week, so I couldn't pass them up!

My sketch inspiration came from Get Sketchy #74, I did change my card size to 5-1/4" x 5-1/4".  My three panels are all scraps of Core'dinations papers, embossed with the Texture Fades Damask Folder, then sanded.  I added this sentiment from Stampotique.
