Sunny Butterfly

I think I'm on a butterfly kick...this is two days in a row.  It's only going to get worse, too--one of the top three stamp sets I can't wait to get my hot little hands on in the new catty is all about the butterflies.  And new butterfly Framelits.  But for now let's have a sunny day:

I inked up the sentiment stamp in Pear Pizzazz and used a Q-Tip to remove the color from a couple of key words, which I then colored with a Bermuda Bay marker.  I don't think I quite got all the Pear Pizzazz ink off though, because parts of the Bermuda words have a distinct greenish cast.  But I'm all like hey, it's an extra color freebie!

Speaking of colors (or should I say colours?), I got this awesome colour palette from Colour Me...!

They're having a design team call right now and I was thinking that I'd love to put my hat in the ring to try out for it, but we're moving in a couple of weeks.  But then I just saw that the DT commitment doesn't start until July, and that might be doable.  Hmm...

Anywha, I also used the sketch from Fab Friday:

I love how there are different challenges every day of the week; my only problem is that a lot of times I need an extra six or seven days in the week to play in all of them, even with combining two or three at a time.  Life is so tough ;)

Hope you have a sunny day, peeps!  We're off to my hubs' cousin's high school graduation tonight.  I'll be wearing a fun springy floral dress.  Cheers!
