hello, sunshine

Hi everyone! This is a repost of a card I made back in September. There is a contest on the Papertrey to post your favorite Papertrey project. They're celebrating their 4th anniversary this month, so there will be a plethora of contests and things. Head over and check it all out! Get in on the fun!!

I love this card because it came straight from my heart. It wasn't for a challenge or anything like that. Some days it feels like all of my cards are "for" something, but this one was just for me. :) Take a look at Nichole Heady's blog for more info on the contest: Nichole Heady




The butterfly has stickles on it and there is a little of Barely Banana within some of the lines in the flourish. Also, those are little rhinestones on the swirls, though I am not sure you can tell. It was hard to get a picture where the Baja Breeze color AND the rhinestones showed well, so I went for letting the Baja Breeze get the glory. :) Well, that's it. Thanks for stopping in.




Stamps: Flutterby Friend, Fancy Flourishes (papertrey)
Card Stock: Baja Breeze (stampin up); Smokey Shadow,Lemon Tart, White (papertrey)
Ink: Basic Grey, Barely Banana (stampin up)
Extras: Lemon Tart ribbon and rhinestones (papertrey)

I love all the details and the color combo - I'm going to have to try the "bookmark ribbon" sometime.
