I decided to play along with the latest CR84FN color challenge , which is to use some fun colors: orange, yellow and kraft. With all the rain we got today, I needed those bursts of color!
I first stamped the background using an image from Background Basics: Petal Power in Versamark ink onto Kraft cardstock, and then I heat embossed it. I die cut and stamped a couple of butterflies from Butterfly Dreams and Love Lives Here. I also stamped a bunch of the tiny butterflies from Round and Round. All the butterflies were stamped with Lemon Tart (PTI) and Apricot (Colorbox) ink. My wonderful orange zest ink is too dry to use :(.
You can't see in this photo, but I stamped the inside with "happy birthday" from Enjoy the Ride and added a couple of the tiny butterflies.
Thanks for taking a look!
