Yippee!! Another great color combo from the CR84FN color challenge. Thanks, Mona for the weekly inspiration, you always get the creative juices flowing. Lavender, celery and gray are the colors we're playing with for the next 2 weeks.

The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms , the gray paper is from a Cosmo Cricket pad, butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch (boy....she's into everything! Just saw a commercial for "pet stuff" on television!), pearls are from Want2Scrap, embossing is Cuttlebug, highlights were made with a Sakura Stardust pen, gold edging from Marvy Gold Calligraphy pen (I use these on almost every card I make...I should buy them by the case!) and seam binding was dyed with Vivid Lavender ink. Thhaattts all folks!

This is the photo that enticed us to play with these colors. When you check out the photo please take time to read the quote! Thanks, Sue for bringing it to my attention. Now I wonder how many other quotes I might have missed! I will have to re-read "older posts".

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
