Bonjour Butterfly

Bonjour from the land of computer issues.  I don't know what was up with the Mac this morning, but it was being super-slow about opening photo files (so I could post today's card) and saving things.  I did a restart and so far, so good.  Maybe our computer is coming down with techno-Alzheimers.  It *is* like 9 years old...

Anyway, card:


Yesterday was better than the day before in the mojo department, I got this card made pretty quickly.  And then I went to go see the original Ghostbusters on the big screen, can't be a bad day when that happens :)  FYI, those are rhinestones flanking the sentiment; for some reason they didn't catch the flash when I took the picture and they look a little weird.  Anyway, I used the brand new Freshly Made Sketch:


And paired it with the Color Throwdown:


I used Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant for my colors, though I wish I'd gone with Rose Red.  The Watermelon Wonder DSP is lighter than the ink (my WW ink pad is still very juicy) and I think Rose Red would have contrasted better.  But too late to peel it all apart.

I'm off to the gym for kickboxing.  Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Watercolor Wings, Happy Happenings
Ink:  Peekaboo Peach, Elegant Eggplant, Watermelon Wonder
Paper:  Peekaboo Peach, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant & Watermelon Wonder DSP
Accessories:  Rhinestones, Dimensionals

I like it. Sometimes they pair colors together that I wouldn't necessarily put together, but this turned out nice.
