Funky Butterflies - CAS

Making a card on the run seems to be the norm lately so here's a CAS card for a color challenge. I have all the ink pads and cardstock for these exact colors but I was in Walmart this afternoon and noticed the array of paint chips. Using my phone to match the colors, I selected a few of the samples and used them on this card.
The white panel was dry embossed and adhered to a black card base. The punched butterflies were adhered and decorated with white pearls. The inside was lined with a white panel and three small flowers that are part of the punch. I elected not to add a sentiment at this time.

This card was inspired by Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #264. Be sure to visit the blog for challenge fun and a chance to win a monthly prize by participating each week.
Techniques: Dry embossing, punch cutting, CAS
Size: A2

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black
Misc.: Paint Chips to match CTMH colors Pacifica, Sapphire and Crystal Blue, EK Success punch, Stampin' Up! TIEF (leaves)
