Hello from California

By the time you are reading this - I'll be just getting ready to land in San Jose for a long over due visit with my California best friend.  I am lucky enough to have besties in a few different states.  It has been way too long since I have seen this friend - so I am SUPER excited!

Today, I thought I would share Tammy's birthday card with you.  You may remember my gushy message about her birthday being this last Saturday.  This is the card  I created for her.  This was my first time using the Swallowtail available in the spring mini.  Oh. My. Gosh.  Hello, new favorite.  :)  The colors for this card are Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, and Baja Breeze.  This is one of the "sweet set" color combinations available at a moments notice with the Color Coach.  I stamped the butterfly onto whisper white cardstock and cut it out.  I then cut out another piece of cardstock the same size, and embossed it with the Cloudy Day folder from the spring catalog.  I love the look of the butterfly over the clouds.

I hope Monday is nice to you!
