Happy Birthday - Blue & Orange Butterfly

This is a bit how I feel!!  It is not unusual for us to get some snow in April, but it still seemed wrong for the ground to be white this morning!!! 

Hi, Friends......

I got inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge with the D is for Denim Blue and Dark Orange and found this pretty tag in my stash that my crafty friend, Kitty, had sent me. (THANKS, Kitty!!!) It was perfect to use with these colors! I don't often use complementaries, but I like this bold combination as a fresh springy look with blue and white.

Supplies used include:
Butterly/floral tag from Kitty
Lawn Fawn - Hang in There stamp set
Versafine ink in Majestic Blue
Doodlebug - Mini Doilies
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Various DCWV patterned paper and solid cardstock
WRMK Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper
Core'dinations/Darice solid cardstock

Hope you liked this take on spring colors!!! Thank you so much for stopping by today.

  5. Oooh, I would never think to combine these two colors but they look beautiful together!! How can you go wrong when you take your color cues from Mother Nature, right? I love the fresh look of the blue and white striped paper, and the contrast with the scalloped mat and swirls! I may have to follow your lead with this color combo
