Butterfly in the Skyyyyy

Happy Friday, y'all!  Ryan wasn't feeling quite up to scratch yesterday, so I'm hoping he feels better today.  In the meantime, I worked on a card while he was sleeping :)

I do love these butterflies, and I can't believe I waited so long to get the Share What You Love DSP...had to use those leaves again since they were still sitting out where I could see them.

Today I started with the CASE the Designer challenge from Global Design Project:

I kept the butterfly theme (I even used the same stamp set!), but I used a different sentiment from the set, and at long last I figured out how to use one of those pearlized doilies I got right before the end of Sale-a-Bration.

I used the Sunday Stamps sketch:

I swear I planned three or four different cards in my head with this sketch, so I'm glad I finally got one of them down on paper.

And here's the Color Throwdown palette:

I used Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive for the two greens (handy that they're both in that leafy pattern), Pool Party for the card base and sentiment panel, and Melon Mambo for my butterflies.  And some black because that always helps.  Oh darn, I had planned to add some Wink of Stella to my butterflies but I forgot to do it before I took the picture.  Oh well!

Have a great weekend, y'all.  I'm hoping to work on Ryan's baby book during his naptime today...maybe I'll have it done by the time he turns three!

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Melon Mambo
