CCMC183 and Flower Fest

Happy Monday, Stampers! Today's Get Well card features the Flower Fest Stamp Set which I purchased a while ago but am inking up for the first time. Love it! Those butterflies are so sweet!

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to shed the earth and jewel tones of the holidays for something a little lighter and brighter. The color combination for this week's Create With Connie and Mary Color Challenge was just what the doctor ordered!

The background was stamped  with Versamark Ink to give a tone-on-tone appearance. The butterflies were also stamped with Veramark, then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and punched out with the Butterfly Punch.

Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Flower Fest, Delightful Dozen
Card Stock: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Soft Suede
Ink Pads: Versamark, Soft Suede
Tools: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon

Such a pretty, 'springy' card! Great idea to showcase each challenge color on a butterfly! They look like they're ready to fly away!
