TGIF! Also known as it was about time to find some time to do laundry ;) And in a  mean time create a new card for some challenges out there

I found this AMAZING inspirational picture over at the Card Concept blog
and immediately fell in love with it. I just had to make something so I can play with them. I came up with something that probably will fall under the category of Clean and simple, even though I'd like to think of it as Cute and Whimsical. Here it is. White card base, green piece of cardstock, another white piece with some cute stamping, add a sentiment, add butterflies (of course!) and that's that. Oh, and lets not forget to take a picture of it in the messiest corner of the house :)

Aside from the inspirational photo I used the Sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and The color palette over at The Color Throwdown
