Pink & Brown Flutter By Challenge

Time for another Flutter By Challenge. This week, Cathy came up with the challenge to use pink and brown along with a fairy or butterfly. I have to tell you that sticking with just two colors was difficult at first. I think I like to have at least 3 when I'm creating!


Pretty simple card.. I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder for the pink cardstock. I found a retired TAC butterfly stamp that I got in a TAC grab bag and used that for the main focal point. The quote is also a TAC stamp, Be of Good which is a level C hostess set. I didn't add much cause I didn't want to take away from the embossing or the butterflies - a bow and button (yes, that was last weeks challenge by me...love them!) did the trick.

Be sure to stop by Danni's blog to see her fabulous card. While you are there you can use Mr. Linky to share your creation - we'd love to see them!! Don't forget to check out the other team members blogs - I promise you won't be disappointed...they are all so very talented! Oh and I want to give a shout out to our newest member, Taylor. She actually joined us last week and like a dork I totally forget to mention it. Welcome to the team, Taylor!!

Not much planned for today - Abby is enjoying VBS and I'm enjoying the quiet in the mornings. It's been such a blessing as I had a project I had to finished and it wouldn't have happened otherwise. Today Abby and I are going to my mom's to pick a few things up - she lives about 30 min away in Lawrence. Thank goodness Jay's off since I've been dealing with a flat tire off and on...he'll be getting new tires on my car. Bummed about it though cause I'd much rather spend the money on stamps and paper then TIRES! Oh well - gotta do whatcha gotta do.

Thanks for stopping by!!
