Blue Flutterby challenge


I was a little rushed today making this card. The kids had a two hour school delay due to fog. Believe me the extra sleep was nice, but it made me rush the rest of the day. Not enough time to get my stuff done! I headed out to a few stores, Michael's in search of some paper packs on sale this week, a new scrapbook store I heard about, and Target. I got lost in Target for too long! LOL! I did grab about 4 6x6 packs of papers at Michaels, and found Basic Grey's new Bittersweet at the LSS. So, it was a good crafting shopping day! Anyways, after school is dance for Gabi, so I got started with the card right after homework, worked for about 15 minutes, than ran out the door. Paul wanted to go look at laptops after dance, so just now finishing up the card, and posting it.
I've decided I wanted to do more challenges with stamping this year. Today, I wanted to play Danni's Wed. Flutterby Challenge. I grabbed my TAC Butterfly bits set, and one of the new paper packs by Making Memories called Chloe's Closet. Other supplies are: SU's tangerine, Baja blue, Brocade blue ink pads, PTI Olive cardstock, stickles, ribbon from Michaels, prima flower, and Martha Stewart Double scallop punch. I used a nestie as well. Trying to get the sizing down on these. Seems big to me sometimes. All in all, bright fun spring butterfly card!
