Kraft "Pop of Color" Challenge card

Happy Sunday!

It is looking to be a fabulous day here in Nova Scotia.  Yesterday was gorgeous and today looks like a repeat.  I hope wherever you are that the day will be wonderful!

I would like to share a card I am submitting for the Kraft Journal Challenge "Pop of Color".  Last week I was unable to participate in their challenge due to a very busy schedule but I made sure to set aside time this week (i.e. not do some of the housework) to make a card.  :)

The card was made using Kraft paper and Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles (S4-344). The band was made using scrap yellow/white paper and brown ribbon. The butterflies are Spellbinders' Les Papillions Two (S4-395). The frame is constructed from Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals (S4-113) and Jewel Frame Accents (S5-144). The sentiment "Spread your wings and fly" is from one of my favorite JustRite stamp sets Spread Your Wings (CL-02170). Inks used were Memento Rich Cocoa and Tim Holtz's Scattered Straw. 
As an FYI: it appears that I went a little pearl crazy on this card.  I did not have intentions of putting the white pearls on. Originally, I had use the white pearl accents pen in the areas shown but I mis-shaped a couple of them so I used the store purchased pearls instead.  Honestly, my pearls looked like I applied them with my opposite hand...and my eyes  closed.  LOL
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!
This card is entered into the Kraft Journal Challenge "Pop of Color":
