Stamp A Holics Challenge 125

Well ladies it was my week to pick the inspirational challenge. I choose this picture for the vibrant colors and such spring/summer like feel. I came up with this card which took about 15 minutes (we won't tell anyone it was over 10)... I used Pink Pirouette for a base and Cottage wall for the mat. French Filigree is the background stamped in Pretty in Pink and dabbed with Silver Shimmer paint. The little butterflies are cut from the Sizzlit Beautiful Wings in Certainly Celery, So Saffron & Pretty in Pink varied on the card. The little glitz is from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit. I used the frame from the Vanilla HodgePodge Kit over the stamped Happy Birthday. The Scallop Trim Corner Punch and Scallop Trim Edge Punch complete center square. I think it all came together nicely and it's such a happy-colored card. Please be sure to by Carole' Anne's Blog and check out the other entries. Better yet, play along! Comments are welcomed and would love to hear your opinion! Thanks for stopping by. This is for the Friday AM challenge but I posted today since I have to work tomorrow and won't have time. (Work, Yuk!) Until next time! Happy Stampin' & Scrappin'
