It's Tuesday so I've got a new colourQ palette to show you!  There's a bit of gold on it which really made me smile when I saw it!

I went with  Midnight Muse background because I thought it would make the gold butterfly stand out more.  I think I was right!  I stamped a few background stamps behind the butterfly also with the intention of making sure the butterfly wasn't lost on a white background.  I love how this turned out and I left a sentiment off so that I can add one later - depending on what I might need it for.

The layout for my card comes from the latest sketch at Fab Friday.  I'm pretty sure I was influenced by the butterfly image on the graphic!  Shocking, I know!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check out the inspiration from my fellow colourQ design team members.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!
