Especially For You

Hello my friends!

It was off to church this morning, and now another relaxing day at home.  It's gorgeous out, so a bike ride is in order.  We're going to finish cooking meals for the week too, I think.  I love having stuff done ahead, so all I have to do is grab something as I walk out the door.  So convenient. 

I made this yesterday, but didn't get it done in time to get a picture of it.  I dig!

The butterfly is so delicate, but she's bold and pops nicely against the blue, white and green.  I was going to use my usual pearls for the body, but wanted something a bit different this time.  I like the way the wood veneer heart looks, almost like it was meant to go in that spot.  Lots of new Simon Says Stamp goodies on this card too.  Love that!  I've combined the following challenges...

Color Throwdown #303: Cool Caribbean, Garden Green, Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parage (I got as close as I could with what I have on hand)
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Case Study #202

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

What's In It?
Paper: SU Baja Breeze & Whisper White cardstock, Green & Lime Bazzill textured cardstock
Stamps: Hero Arts Flourish Background, Simon Says Stamp Friendship Messages
Ink: VersaMark, Tuxedo Black dye ink
Accessories: Butterfly Circle Nestabilities, Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly die
