One More Card for Today

Being gone, and then running thither and yon since I've been back home, today is the real first day I've had a chance to craft. However, I'll keep prattle to a minimum and get right to business. If you'd like to see my first post, click here. One card, two challenges. They just pinged right into place, and I had to run with it. The pings will not be denied. The sketch is from the Fusion Card Challenge, and the colors are from the Color Throwdown.


   


I don't have many butterflies, and so I stuck with the sketch. Here's my card.




It's fairly CAS, and for sure (to quote dear Darnell...) QACAS. Green, light blue and navy scraps. TAWS and PS stamps. Jenni Bowlin ink. A scrap of blue jeanish ribbon. And a panel of MME. So I'll stop now. Happy dances everyone. : )

Love the flower paired with the text background - the images work so well together! Great spot for the sentiment.

Ditto on Ardyth's comment - you used these typical masculine colors in a fabulously feminine way!

BTW...the CCC theme this week is to "Use a Floral Image" so you best get this beauty linked up there as well!
