Simply Happy

I absolutely fell in love with the color challenge colors for today! They are happy colors! I thought the butterflies from "Flight of the Butterfly" would look great in the colors, so that is where I started. I also wanted to try this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge and this set seemed to work nicely with it. My proportions are a tad off, but I don't think the stamping police need to get involved! LOL! As promised, here is another birthday design, which I think works nicely for an adult woman or little girl.
I kept everything clean and simple, not many bells and whistles, which is completely opposite of how I am in the mood to create! I really did want to *add* more, but couldn't find the right thing. Now that I am looking at it, it probably could use a little piercing around the focal image, but oh well! This is a SUO card that I think would be perfect for a workshop or stamp-a-stack, especially since the buttons were bought in bulk. The hardest part was deciding which DSP to use, which I settled on some Kiwi dots from the Rockabilly collection and the pink from a hostess DSP pack. I thought the two patterns worked nicely together. There really isn't much more to say about it...it is pretty straightforward.

We had a cold-front move in, so the spring like weather has come and gone and we are back to coats. I guess it is supposed to snow again tomorrow. My daffodils and hyacinths have finally bloomed and my tulips are ready to make an appearance in the next week or two.


Stay tuned this week for some vintage designs. I really need to get on the ball to get some more cards for the donation pile! Thanks for fluttering by!

This is so cute just the way it is! I don't think you need to add anything, but then again, I'm a bit of a "CAS" stamper I think.

Have a great day!

The color combination is very nice. I like the papers that you chose to accent the focal image.
