Chicks Challenge #5

I decided to play along with the Chicks with Inkpads Challenge this week. Click here to see the inspiration picture.
I thought those butterflies were so pretty! I used the colors from the picture in my card -purple (Almost Amethyst), green (Certainly Celery) and pink (Pretty in Pink). I pulled out some of my Tea Party dsp, since it has ALL of those colors - how perfect! :) (Plus I LOVE this paper, seriously). For my butterfly, I used my Beautiful Butterflies die with my Big Shot, layering two butterflies and adding a white flower button (from Button Latte) with a half-pearl set in the middle. The sentiment comes from a set called Hope Happens. I bought this set thinking I could use it for scrapbooking some of my daughter's pictures - the sayings are so sweet, and I love how this one coordinates with the butterfly in flight. The layout is Fall-t0-Layout #32 from Clean & Simple Stamping. The final card measures 5"x5".

I have a busy weekend ahead. My daughter's 3rd birthday party is on Saturday. It is a very small affair with just family, but I still need to do the cleaning and cooking. Enavi is SO excited - she's been talking about her party for about two weeks! On Sunday I'll be holding a mother/daughter class in Pewaukee, which I am really looking forward to. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

Just lovely Jenn! Sorry I will miss your stamping session on the
2nd but I will still be babysitting my grandson and it is his birthday that day.

What a great design! I like the spring-like colour palette.
