Life's Special Moments

Happy Thursday! The weekend's almost here! It's supposed to be rainy here, but that's not stopping us from making plans...we like to take advantage of every summer weekend we've got!

I played along with two challenges today: Limelight Sketch 49: Butterflies and The Play Date Cafe Challenge 33...which just happens to be featuring a fabulous guest designer, Courtney Baker! Woohoo! You know I had to play along, not only to support my buddy, but also because these colors are right up my alley!

With the sketch, colors, and butterflies picked out for me, putting this card together was a snap! What do you think of it?

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Aqua Mist, Raspberry Fizz, kraft, white

Ink: Raspberry Fizz

Accessories: SU Beautiful Butterflies die, SU scalloped edge punch, Kaisercraft rhinestones, dimensionals

I love your CAS design Ann - and this also qualifies for the SCS WT challenge today - use a butterfly or bugs on your card.
