The Card Concept #16 and a little Time Out

I loved each and every DT inspiration card at The Card Concept #16... well, honestly who could help but be inspired by this photo:

But.  Colleen's card really called to my hydrangea-loving heart.  And I may have just the Martha Stewart punch to help my cause... I'd give anything to have the one Colleen used.  Hmmm... ebay?
 


Since I've chosen to use those tiny little bitty butterflies, it will also qualify for Time Out's Celebration with a side of butterflies - kismet!  Maybe arranged kismet =/

There is an overlay of vellum on the MFT CS base- though I do wish I'd had a bit bluer CS, it is a gorgeous color. W&W words to the rescue, as always.  A different hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart for the butterflies.

This is lovely! So many great details that make this card great. LOVE the stitched edged, LOVE the vellum, LOVE the partial flower die cuts (I wanted these too and all sold out! Grrr!)
Lovely take on the challenge. Thanks for playing over at The Card Concept!

Have to tell you I thought of you at dinnertime today. Made a giant fruit salad complete with Michigan Blueberries, YUM! Speaking of yum...this card is perfectly delicious. The blue is so rich, and I'm loving your teeny-tiny butterflies. Wonderful wedding card, and way to rock 2 challenges! Bev
