You Made My Day

I had some time this afternoon to craft so I started looking through challenge blogs and found this great sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch. I wanted to make a card with a butterfly for my sister in law so this sketch was the perfect starting point.

The card base is Coastal Cabana and I used a strip of Best Year Ever DSP backed with some Calypso Coral card stock and ribbon. The Crushed Curry was a bit bright by itself against this DSP so I cut out the butterfly in both Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral. and the coral definitely helped tone it down against the paper. 

The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts and was stamped in Soft Suede. The card still lacked a little something for me so I did what I usually do when I feel that way, paper pierce the edges!

Thanks for stopping by!
