Fab Friday on Monday

Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge 
this week at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog.

I think this is the first time for me to play along with this challenge. 

The challenge this week is to use the new In-Colors. Use a few or use all.

I ended up using four of the five colors. You may remember this card, I made awhile back using one of the butterfly dies. At that time I thought of making some just with some bright pretty colors inlaid into the die cuts and this was the perfect excuse to do that.
I guess it would be easier to just lay a black cut out butterfly over the colored cardstock I wanted to use, but that is not the look I was going for.
I die cut three black butterflies using one of the Bold Butterfly dies and then die cut again with three of the in colors I was using.
I glued the black butterfly down to some scrap white card stock and then inlaid the colored pieces.
I used Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron 

The base of the card is the Tip top Taupe and I embossed one of the layers with the Brick Wall EF.
The sentiment on here is from the new Birthday Blossoms stamp set.
I added some twine for the antennas and three little pearls down the body.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
