Ahh… the weekend! Yesterday was a little rough after my Thursday but I made it through. I had dinner last night at Buffalo Wild Wings with Danielle and Anthony. Mmm… fried pickles are delicious! The wings are a little salty , I needed Chapstick soon after dinner but all in all a very nice meal. What are you all up to for the weekend? I’m off to the airport tonight to retrieve my friend Kim. Sunday I’m thinking I will take her home but this morning is a crafty morning!
For today’s post I have my card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This week we have a color challenge…
I decided to go super clean and simple. The base of my card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock. I stamped the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in Not Quite Navy down the left side. The card is also cut to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ so that the Marina Mist banner can hang off the side but still fit in a standard envelope. The greeting is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set and is also stamped in Not Quite Navy. I flagged the right side and hid the left under a butterfly that is stamped in Daffodil Delight and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. I added some Basic Jewels Rhinestones for a little sparkle and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really do like the simplicity of the card and I think the colors work well with the layout. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge. Thanks for visiting and have a creative day!
