Circle Colour Challenge

It's not like me to post twice in one day, but I couldn't resist this circle colour challenge over at Embellish Magazine's blog.  



Supplies: Stamps and Ink - Hero Arts (sentiment, background); Punch - Martha Stewart; Ribbon - Creative Impressions; Liquid Pearls; Nestabilities - Circles and Labels Trio; Inkssentials Gel pen; Distress Ink - Shabby Shutters; sewing machine.
These have to be my favourite colours... and although my husband always quotes the old phrase: 'Blue and Green should never be seen without a colour in between', I just LOVE them together.  ESPECIALLY with some white!
I got the idea to use Liquid Pearls on my butterfly from THIS card by the WONDERFUL Jennifer McGuire.  She is a daily source of inspiration and loveliness. 
Happy Saturday.
