Happy Saturday morning to you all. Is everyone all ready for their Easter Egg Hunts and baskets filled with goodies? My brother and his fiancé are coming by tomorrow for a bit. I’m going to go over Wedding invitations with them so I can get started making them! I’m quite excited to be doing it, I know it will take a while but I can’t wait to get started! For today’s card I am posting this weeks Pals Paper Arts card. This week they have given us a color challenge…

I love all of the colors and I couldn’t wait to get started on my card. I wanted to use a set that I don’t use often and I don’t really see a lot of. I went with the Precious Butterflies Stamp Set from the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. It’s a Host(ess) set and is most likely only going to be available for a few more weeks. I started with a card base of Chocolate Chip. I then ran a piece of Certainly Celery through my Big Shot using the Finial Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. All of the stamps, including the greetings, are from the Precious Butterflies Stamp Set and they are all stamped in Chocolate Chip, with a lighter touch for a distressed look. I punched the one image of the circle of butterflies out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I cut the just for You out with my Paper Snips (all of the cutting is for my friend Sandy!) and mounted them on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped two of the large and three of the small butterflies on Pretty In Pink and cut those out with my Paper Snips. The butterfly flurry is also stamped on Pretty In Pink and cut out. They are all mounted to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The quote is backed with some more Pretty In Pink. I am so happy with the card and hope that you like it too. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your Saturday!
