Forever Fern for CAS Colours and Sketches 442

If someone asked me what my favourite colours were, I'd usually say they were whatever I was currently working with. However, I do keep coming back to the Regal Family, so the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches was extra appealing to me.

One of my all-time favourite sets from the Annual Catalogue is Forever Fern, so I've used it - with a little help from the Brilliant Wings dies.

I masked a column with painter's tape and sponged Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy using Blending Brushes. The foliage is stamped in Old Olive. 

Three Night of Navy rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack finished the butterfly, cut from Brilliant Wings, off nicely.

Update: Delighted to be a Weekly Winner at CAS Colours and Sketches.
