Plum Birthday

Howdy, peeps!  How's your Wednesday going?  I actually got up early (for once) and got some things done on the computer this morning, which means I can spend the afternoon either playing in my craft room or working on some stitching :)

I just loved the latest color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary, but I missed the cutoff for it by ten lousy minutes.  Dangit!  Here it is anyway:

I think Perfect Plum and Sahara Sand are both under-utilized in color challenges, and I do love them paired with Mint Macaron.  Yay.  I can still enter this card at SUO Challenges since I used a butterfly...yeah, the only hard part of that challenge was choosing *which* butterfly image to use!

I also used a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping:

Fantastic sketch.  Between that and the color challenge, my card took like ten minutes to make.

Anyway, before I start my hectic afternoon schedule (ha), I'd better grab some lunch.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Butterfly Basics
Ink:  Perfect Plum
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, new Mint Macaron DSP
Accessories:  Butterflies Thinlits, Circles Framelits, Dimensionals, pearls

That Sahara Sand had a purplish tint to it on my computer. But picturing what I know it to look like, I really do like that color combo.

Hope you've been having a very nice afternoon. I'm fixin' to leave early as I worked through lunch. Going to dinner with the A Team tonight. Love you!

I'm glad you choose the lacy butterfly - it's so sweet - especially with these lovely soft colours. So glad you joined in the challenge at SUO!
