Color Throwdown with Butterflies

My friend Kristin is the newest member for the Color Throwdown Challenge Team. I decided I would play along this week and see what I could create with her color challenge. The colors are:

I wanted to ink up my new stamps from My Time Made Easy.....aren't these butterflies just wonderful! I just love how the butterflies look like they are flying right off of the card. I used some of My Time Easy's digital patterned paper too.......it's great. I didn't leave my house to get paper at the store, just clicked print and walla! I just open up the digi image with Windows Picture Viewer, a program that comes with your PC, click print, choose borderless 8 1/2 x 11 and you should have a full sheet of patterned paper.
I added a few dew drops that I thought made the card pop too. I love the definition paper.....it added just the right background for my butterflies! This card is for my Mom's birthday that is coming up on the 25th. It is also her 40th wedding anniversary as well!
Hope all of you are having a great weekend. It is still very cold here, but the word is that it might warm up today....isn't that crazy when we think warm is 25 degrees......sure beats the -8 temp when I got home last night!
