Watercolor Trio Birthday Wishes

I've decided to give card-making a try again.  After recently losing my mojo, I was feeling very discouraged.  But I was determined to create something today that I actually liked.  Plus I really wanted to make a card with this week's Color Throwdown colors.  I paired the colors with the FTL110 layout.

Aren't these colors just fabulous?  The perfect plum and early espresso are just perfect together!  I made a card yesterday with these colors, but decided it was lousy.  I like this one much better.


One thing I noticed about this Watercolor Trio stamp set today.  I always thought the littlest stamp was a small butterfly, but it occured to me as I was making this card that it's probably a small flower.  Oops.  For this card, it is intended to be a butterfly.  You know, it's wings are spread as it's coming in for a landing.  Work with me here!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today! Pin It Now!

I'm with you Jeanette. I also thought it was a butterfly and I intend to keep my thoughts that way. I think it's more of a butterfly then a flower anyway. Nice card!
