Buttons & Butterflies Card

This morning I planted a flat of white petunias in my front flower bed next to my stella de oro daylilies. I love how petunias smell, and they just make me happy. When I ventured back inside I decided to make a card for a couple of my regular challenges. I knew I needed to use buttons & butterflies to participate at Flutter By Wednesday, Simon Says Stamp challenge is for flower power, and Charisma Cardz is NO Digis Allowed. With those three challenges in mind, I created this Buttons & Butterflies Card. I have to tell you that I love the Stampin' Up! colour Island Indigo! So much so, that I'm thinking about painting my front door and shutters with it. My hubby isn't as convinced but I think it would be a great change from the hunter green I have now. What do you think, should I go with Island Indigo??? Well... thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

Buttons & Butterflies Card Supplies*:
  • Paper: Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, and Whisper White card stock and Sycamore Street dsp from sale-a-bration.
  • Stamps: Madison Avenue stamp set, Papillon Potpourri stamp set and Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pads in Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, and Pool Party.
  • Other Stuff: Sycamore Street buttons, Island Indigo twine, Bitty Butterfly punch, Bitty Banners framelits, Big Shot, and stampin' dimensionals.
