chocolate and mint. . . .

are the colors for this week's challenge at Less is More. 
Here is my card:



It was very cloudy here when I took this photo and it did not turn out very well.  The mint cardstock looks light blue.  I have several dark brown inks that I tried for this card.  When I stamped them on white cardstock, two of them were a rich chocolate color.  When I stamped them on this mint cardstock; they were a very light, washed out brown.  I was not happy.  So, I decided to go with silver embossing for the sentiment and die cut my butterfly from silver paper.  The dies  are from Memory Box and the sentiment is from Wplus9. 

Have a great day!
