Quick Cards-Butterfly

Today I've had some time to create with some of our new stamp sets.
 Here is my favorite of the day but the picture doesn't do it justice. 
The colors are more soft and vibrant in real life.

I used one of our new A Size stamp sets called Quick Cards-Butterfly.
 At only $6.95 these A sets are a great deal! There are quite a few in our Spring Summer Idea Book so be sure to look for them!

I'm a big fan of blues, greens and purples. I decided to use that as my theme and selected Gypsy, Lagoon and Pacifica inks for the background and CS layers. We also have sparkles in those colors so of course they had to be on the card! Now the cool thing about the ribbon is that it started out white! It's our new Color Ready Ribbon and I LOVE it! All I did was take a sponge and rub some Gypsy and Lagoon ink on it for a two-tone look. That's it! You don't even need to wait for it to dry! I tied it around the butterfly layer, put some 3D-Foam in the corners and adhered it to the white card base. It was very simple and fun. I loved seeing the colors blend and create a beautiful background for the details of the butterfly.
