Flowery Leaves- CCCCact31

Got some time to stamp! Yeah!
So I went over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and saw her Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 31 inspiration. What different colors to work with, Almost Amethyst, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Night of Navy and Garden Green. I wasn't real sure what I wanted to do with them, but as I got the colors out, my card just kind of came together!

Here is what I cam up with and I really like it! I punched out the leaves using the Extra Large Two--Step Bird punch with the Garden Green card stock. Then I glued them on to the Night of Navy card stock in a random pattern. Next I used the new Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack from the Summer Mini to punch the flowers out using the Pretty in Pink and the Almost Amethyst card stocks and then glued them to the leaves. I used the retired Messages for Mom stamp for the greeting stamped in Night of Navy ink.

Then....I added the butterfly...what do you think? Do you like the card with or without the butterfly? I couldn't decide, so I uploaded them both! :)

Thanks for looking!

I'm so glad you got a chance to play along with Stacey's challenge! I had time to stamp today too and loved it! I like the card before and after the butterfly! The leaf back drop with the flowers is SO cute! But of course butterflies are hard to resist too! hahaha!
