In Colour Butterflies

Wow - I got totally diverted today!  I created this card in the morning, photographed it....and I'm not sure what happened to the rest of the day - except that it has rained and my head desperately wants to ache.  I'm laying low until the clock says it's a god time to go to bed.

Anyway - the butterfly dreams is for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge today using the new set of In Colours.  I know CAS and no texture is outside of my usual realm of stamping - but that's what I went with today.  I guess that's what was needed since I did finish designing the cards for my Christmas in August on the 23rd.



Here is the layout for Lyssa's 31 pages in 31 days.  I kept the colours the same, and the layout is close - I adjusted the size of some of the squares.  I left the one photo off because I want to be sure that I have another copy of it.  It's one of my favourite pictures of Allison - I want to enlarge it before I use it for this layout.
Based on Lyssa's inspiration - I added little dots of Crystal Effects around the centre scallop and I created the butterflies with card stock vellum.

Well - lets see if the basement has cooled off.  I tell ya - if anyone complains about not having summer this year........
Hope things cool off in the evenings where you are - thanks for dropping in!
