  1. Morning John,
    I Just Love Butterflies, I actually like the Colour pallete you've chosen, I also think sometime we have to think if we don't like those Colours what about if I tried it in this Colourway etc: etc: I Love the White Heat Embossed centre it looks stunning, in fact the last photograph shows your card of wonderfully, thanks for sharing your talent with us John.
    Hugs from Sam x

  2. Hello John, I think this colour combo works really well, the whole card is lovely, especially those beautiful butterflies. Have a great day. Bx

  3. Beautiful John, love the layout, the colours work together but not to my taste but you got to try and you can't please everyone lol!

  9. Hi John,
    Lovely card, love the fluttering butterflies, my screen is showing pale green and pink, but it's still pretty.

  10. Eh up John
    The colours do work together on this pretty card but they're not colours for me ( moving into browns is a slow process for me lol!).
    Hope you're all set for tomorrow.

  11. Hi John,

    Love Sheila xx

  12. Hi John, can't really see the colours as the beige looks more like pale green, however at least you know that pink and pale green look good together Lol.

  13. Well like I've said before you are not afraid to mix it up and although I didn't expect to like it when I saw the title - I actually do - good for you for trying things that I certainly wouldn't - I play safe with colours and not that confident about mixing and matching but really need to get out of my comfort zone xx GailT xx

  14. beige and pink is always a favorite of mine, great card John.

  15. Good morning John,
    I think it must be the first time i have actually liked the use of craft card as it has always reminded me of a paper bag or box but with the soft pink added to it just makes it look lovely. Thank you John for a beautiful butterfly card,

  20. Hi John,
    such a very pretty card.
    I love the colour choice, and one of fave embellishments are butterflies.
    Sue's ones are just gorgeous, and are next on my long, long, list of must haves.
    Been having problems with my browser which made it very difficult to comment, but my DH has sorted it out now.
    Looking forward to your programs tomorrow.
    I am very excited as I sent some spellbinder creations into the Create and Craft Gallery, and I have been chosen as first club crafter of the month to go out in a email today.
    Crafty Regards. Jenny L.

  21. Beautiful card - right up my alley!

  22. I'm back No access to Internet has been really painful! It's amazing what we take for granted these day (and this is coming from a 58 year old techno-phone!) even down to a fellow dancer bringing a teacher into our hotel - locals not working at hotel are not allowed unless invited - just to make a phone call! I live the colours etc of card Feel I've really missed out on blogs and shows etc I need another week off work to catch up on yours and others posts

  23. Beautiful card John. You and Sue Wilson are both having a butterfly day today, lovely.

  24. Hi John.
    This is right up my street. I love the colour combo and I just adore butterflies. I'd use them on my Xmas cards if I thought I'd get away with it lol.
    Lovely xx

  25. Loving the colours. wouldn't have been a choice I would have come up with but am now off to try a card using these two colours. Thank you again for your fantastic daily inspiration x
