Butterfly Bliss

Hello and happy Wednesday!

I really love the new Bliss stamp set (which by the way, you can get free as part of Sale-a-bration!) - it makes for really beautiful cards, with little effort!  I combined the color challenge from colourQ and the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday to create my card for today:


The colors in this week's colourQ threw me off a little, but I was ready for a challenge. :)  I do like the way it all turned out!

Well, I need to run.. busy night!  Thanks for stopping by!
