DD #43 & Seize the Birthday #9



Sharing a card for Dynamics Duos and Seize the Birthday.  I don't know if the time change affected you but I have been dragging and losing track of time all day today.  I finally kicked it gear to get a card done for this week's amazing colours and this week's sketch from Seize the Birthday.





Wishing spring to get here soon I pulled out an older Cuttlebug embossing folder, used my stitched mats again (you are going to be seeing a lot of these) and my favourite butterfly from Papertrey's Pretty Peonies. I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamps A Bit O'Green challenge. 




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist
Stamps: Pretty Peonies, Everyday Button Bits
Ink:  Aqua Mist, True Black
Dies: Pretty Peonies (PTI) Stitched Mats (Lil' Inkers)
Embossing Folder: Bird and Vines (Cuttlebug)
other: tiny pearls (K & Company), foam tape

This is a gorgeous card. I don't mind seeing those stitched mats all day, I love them, too. How funny--I had my pretty peonies out today, too. I like how the embossing is branches, and it looks like your butterfly is perched near that little bird.

Delightful and perfectly clean. I'm all messed up by the time change, too. Glad to know I'm not alone :-)

Very, very pretty, Tracey. Clean and simple and beautiful. My favorite kind of card! Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos. ;-)

I struggle with the Spring time change, too. Takes me a good month or so to catch up, if I ever do. Best wishes to you! ;-)
