So Glad

I loved Kazan's sketch this week over at 2S4Y because it allowed me to keep things fairly clean and simple. I love the look of a few bold colors against all that white. I combined the sketch with today's 365 Cards challenge to use rounded edges.

Don't forget: Starting Wednesday, the Paper Blooms blog will be holding weekly challenges. Pay us a visit to see all the gorgeous DT creations.
Also be sure to stop by my blog on Friday. It's my birthday, so I'll be celebrating...

Stamps: Best Yet (SU)
Paper: PTI white & Aqua Mist

Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, corner rounder punch, Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, flowers (Prima), buttons (BasicGrey Urban Prairie), ribbon (Hobby Lobby)

Very pretty card! Simple, yet elegant.

I agree. The bold colors of the flowers and butterfly look more special against the white background. I like that you chose to emboss the top of the background.
