cQc174: Imagine the Possibilities Swallowtail

It's been awhile since I have done any crafting or cardmaking. I got super busy with work and over the past year I have been focused on my health and losing weight. I started traveling a lot for work and something had to give. Unfortunately, I gave up crafting for a bit. My travel schedule has lessened so I'm looking forward to getting back to crafting. To top it off, over the past year I have lost close to 70 pounds. Hooray for me!

This card was made for the colourQ challenge. This week's colors were Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso and Vanilla. I substituted Whisper White for the Vanilla. To add a little bit more pizazz to the card, I used Frost White Shimmer Paint and tinted it with Raspberry Ripple reinker. I then splattered the card with a bit of it.

And, now for the details...
