Well, Makeesha from Inkspirations had me a bit stumped with THIS colour combo:

It was the Not Quite Navy in the mix that threw me, but I was determined to give it a try anyway.  I haven't used my Friends Never Fade stamp set for AGES, so that was my starting point.  I coloured directly onto the stamp with Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz markers, and repeated the image along the strip of Whisper White card, which was adhered to my card base.  My super-duper new Crimper has seen a bit more action, and of course my card wouldn't be complete without butterflies! 

Stamps: Friends Never Fade, Sincere Salutations
Card: Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy
DSP: Peach Parfait Patterns Designer Series Paper (hostess pack)
Ink: Versamark inkpad, Pear Pizzazz stampin' pad and marker, Peach Parfait stampin' pad and marker
Other: Birds & Blooms sizzlits die, Neutrals brad, Pear Pizzazz ribbon, Eyelet Border punch, Beautiful Wings embosslits, Decorative Label punch, sponge daubers, stampin' dimensionals, mini glue dots, Crimper
