Fifth Avenue Floral With Butterfly

When I saw the colors over at the Color Throwdown blog this past Wednesday, I thought "be still my heart."  I don't know what it is, but the colors of black, crumb cake, kiwi kiss, and baja breeze are FANTABULOUS!  And I know you'll find this shocking, but I just happened to have some retired Urban Oasis designer paper left over, which had some fabulous designs using both crumb cake and kiwi kiss.

I have a VERY limited supply of Kiwi Kiss card stock left over, but I couldn't resist using it.  And as you can see, I used it sparingly!  I paired this wonderful color challenge with the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge.  I almost left the butterfly off because I thought the layout of the card looked okay without it, but I wanted to remain true to the sketch challenge.  I added the button to give it a little more visual interest.

Since the base of this card is basic black, I also included a whisper white panel on the inside to make writing a sentiment easier.  The wonderful Urban Oasis designer paper gave me this sweet strip to liven things up.

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

Really nice card. I love that stamp set. You can never have too many flower stamps.
