Playful Backgrounds - Butterfly & Bubbles

It's been a while since I used the Playful Backgrounds stamp set.  I love the way the bubbles create an amazing background for this delicate butterfly.  The Bold Butterfly in Pool Party is well complimented against the Soft Suede bubble background.

Daubers are a great way to create amazing backgrounds and mix and match color combos.  For this card, I used Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi to create the background. The Happy Birthday Thinlits greeting is the perfect addition to this card.

Card Sketch Challenge #1: Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack

One of my favorite ways to inspire new creativity is to start with a great card sketch.  Today’s Rose Garden Thinking of You card and sketch share a very simple way to do a beautiful card with plenty of WOW! using the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack in Berry Burst.  

I cut out the rose using the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies in three different cardstock in-colors to create this rose.... Fresh Fig, Berry Burst and Powder Pink.
