CC&S - Colour Challenge

Hi there and welcome!
Today I have my DT card to share with you for the latest challenge over at CAS - Colours and Sketches.
We have a colour challenge for you to play along with this week -
We have used Stampin' Up colours to inspire you, but all you have to do is use the colours you have in your stash that are the closest to ours. For example, I don't have Raspberry Ripple in my collection so I substituted it for Rich Razzleberry.
Here is my DT card -
I've just realised this is a little blurry, sorry.
I decided that I wanted to create another card using my Partial Die Cutting technique that I first learnt when I subscribed to Online Card Classes.
If you are interested in how to create this card, I have a tutorial that includes a link for you to add your creations so we can all see them. Check it out by clicking the link below - it really is sooo easy!

So, using this technique, I tried a few different dies and stamps but I just wasn't happy with the end result. I need to keep working on it. I ended up going back to my 'old faithful' Hero Arts butterfly stamps and matching dies. Using the colours as inspiration, I have simply coloured the butterflies and then outlined them with a cool grey marker.
The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping - isn't just beautiful??
Now it is time to head on over the the challenge blog and check out what the rest of the DT have come up with for your inspiration.

Edited to add challenges I would like to enter -
As this was a scheduled post, I forgot to add some challenges that I knew I would like to join. Then, last night we had a wicked storm and I had trouble with the internet. I couldn't do it from my phone, blah blah.....

Anyhoo - I would love to add this card into the following challenges -

Make My Monday - One Layer CAS Card
OLW - Challenge 134 is to use threes (I have used three colours)
Casology - Up (I feel my butterflies are flying UP off the page)
The Outlawz - CAS - Anything Goes
