Stampin' Up! Slim Sayings Birthday Card

Welcome to another HITBH! If you came from Sue Prather's site, I'm glad you are continuing the hop. If you haven't then I hope you'll continue to hop using my links below. No matter what, I'm glad you're here. Today we have a color challenge and here is what I created for it...

I chose to use Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Mossy Meadow.

I was inspired by Anna Helman and her daughter, Kelsey. I used the Slim Sayings Stamp Set for my sentiments. For my images, I used the Daisy Lane and Honeybee Home Stamp Sets. For the splatters, I used the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set.

My card base is Crushed Curry cardstock, mats are Basic Black and Basic White. The patterned paper is Daffodil Afternoon DSP. I punched the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch and sponged the front Basic White panel with Crushed Curry. I added three Brushed Brass Butterflies. Measurements are listed below.
