My Pink Stamper - March challenge - Butterfly color challenge

  It's time for another My Pink Stamper challenge!  Think Spring...here are the details:

You may have other colors on your project
must be somewhere on your project.

  My favorite part of Spring are the bright, happy colors on the blooms.  I prefer bolder colors to pastels.  And bold colors need a bold sentiment!  I chose "CELEBRATE" from My Pink Stamper's "Birthday Crazy" set.  I love the varied fonts in this set; something for everyone I need to make a birthday card for.  The fonts range from lovely and elegant, whimsical and fun, to bold!  Wanna see?

  To create this card I used all of my favorite things:  my Cricut, My Pink Stamper stamp, Echo Park papers, baker's twine, a button, and my grandma's sewing machine. I cut my ric rac from the "Plantin Schoolbook" cartridge @ 3/4".  I wrapped some yummy baker's twine (My Mind's Eye Out of the Blue "SMILE") around the base layer.  My butterfly is an Echo Park element sticker that I stuck on white card stock, fussy cut a thin border, then popped up on thick foam tape.  The tiny clothes pins have been in my stash for quite some time (Santa brought a couple of years ago)...I think I have only used them once before.  I think they are going to get used more often now; love them!  The papers are from my all-time favorite Echo Park collection "a walk in the PARK."  Of all of my paper collections, this is now the thinest...I have used it countless times.  The green Echo Park paper is sewn onto a layer of white card stock with my grandma's sewing machine.  Thanks, Gram!

  For loads of inspiration, check out what my fabulous DT sisters have created for this challenge at My Pink Stamper blog.  Then create your own YELLOWGREEN, and BLUE BUTTERFLY card!

Happy Tuesday!
