CTD213/SSC80 - Birthday Butterfly

 It's time for the Color Throwdown Challenge #213 (CTD213).  Our hostess for this week is the talented Broni and she's chosen some fabulous colors along with a beautiful inspiration photo.

For my card there's not a whole lot of stamping going on, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Think Big Favorites #12 for my sentiment and layered two PTI butterfly die cuts with a button for my focal image.  I used the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #80 for my layout.  I wasn't sure whether I would like my sentiment on the top portion of my card because I'm used to stamping it toward the bottom or within a shape with my image but I actually really like it.
 Supplies: Beautiful Butterflies dies, Think Big Favorites #12, Simple Stripes Impressions Plate, Scallop border die, Circle Nesties, Ribbon, Button, Rhinestones, Foam tape.

Wow, I love these bright colors together! What a cute card! The first thing I thought of was that this would make a great little girl's card. My niece is turning 3 at the end of November and I think I'm going to CASE it. Great job, as always!
