Flowers and a Butterfly

I made this card with the Color Throwdown Challenge colors:

I love these colors! I hope you like the card. I also used a sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, which I didn't make in time, aw! I'll try again for the next one. I wasn't sure when it was closing since this was my first time joining the challenges. I love sketches...

I started with a vanilla base and dry embossed a piece to lay over that. I used basic gray to frame another piece of dry embossed vanilla for the base of the embellishments. The horizontal strips are poppy parade, pumpkin pie, and basic gray. The flower was made using an SU die-Daisies, which I love! I placed a pumpkin pie button in the center, added a stamped and punched butterfly and that's it! The Stamp set is Stampin' Up! Papillon Potpourri and the SU punch goes with it.

I would also like to enter this in the Make It Monday 102 challenge
And Tammy's Scrapin' Corner #23-Add Some Flowers 
 Thanks for looking!
