Butterfly Love

Hello, hope your weekend is going well.  We are enjoying some lovely weather, with temps around 80 degrees, at least for another day, then back to normal Northwest rain.

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for three challenges:  The weekly Color Challenge and Ways to Use it Challenge (Butterflies) at Splitcoaststampers ( and this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.

The colors for the SCS Color Challenge are bright, bright, bright - Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo. Because they are so bright, I decided to use the colors sparingly with a large amount of white.  The neat sketch from CTS was perfect to do just that.

The butterflies for the Ways to Use it Challenge were colored with Crushed Curry and Tangelo Twist.  I was amazed to find that I did not have any Tangerine Tango ink but the In Color filled in perfectly.

With such a big white space in the sketch, I thought the embossing folder with floral stems would add to the spring feel of the card.

Thanks for your visit today, it's so appreciated!  I always love to read your comments, so please take a moment and say Hi! I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful and Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!
