Happy Hellos!

This card is patterned after the one on p. 79 of the SU catalog. I love that card, so I tried to adapt it to what I had, and this is what came out! I really love the colors, so springy. Speaking of spring, we have had two days of it! Woohoo! Not that it's going to last, but it is a nice change.
Details from the top down:
The butterflies are stamped in eggplant ink on lavender paper and highlighted with a white gel pen. The flowers are stamped in lavender ink on white paper and highlighted with stickles. The birds are clear-embossed on teal paper (I tried to use my SAMJ to line them up straight, but it was HARD!). The words are white-embossed on eggplant paper. The card base is wasabi, and a little soft sky ribbon finishes it up.
Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Live Your Dream, Lots of Thoughts
paper - wasabi, lavender, ww, teal, eggplant
ink - eggplant, lavender, versamark
acc - white & clear EPs, sky grosgrain, white gel pen, stickles

I really like the colour scheme for this card. I too love the original from the catalogue, maybe I need to come up with something.....

This is a fun card. Love the colors, they do scream Spring and we all need a little bit of that! Great idea with the repeating patterns. :)

Hey Becky, these colors are so cool together! I never use Eggplant, but maybe I need to try!
