Butterflies & Zebra Birthday Card

When The Play Date Cafe color challenge came out yesterday I knew I had to play along.  The colors in this challenge are beautiful together.  I decided to combine the colors with a sketch challenge at Card Positioning Systems.  I gathered all the patterned papers and cardstock that would possibly work but once I found the yellow zebra paper I had to use it.  The end result is this butterflies & zebra birthday card.

Butterflies & Zebra Birthday Card Supplies:
  • Paper: White cardstock, textured pale yellow cardstock, poseidon cardstock by Core'dinations (GX-OS040), portrait collection patterned paper by Crate Paper (PT906), and yellow zebra patterned paper by The Paper Studio (460964).
  • Stamps: Curly Cute Happy Birthday sentiment by Stampin' Up! (120510).
  • Inks: ColorBox chalk ink in aquamarine.
  • Other Stuff: Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart Crafts, corner punch, rhinestones by Recollections, and stampin' dimesnsionals.
