Project 365, Day #73

Hello!

I hope you had a good day.  Today I was running different errands all day.  I really feel like I didn't get much done though.  The girls got their braces put on today.  They are not very happy about it.  They wanted the braces, but now that they are on, it's a different story.  I know it takes time to get used to them and they will do better.  For my butterfly today, I decided to use yesterday's card and change the colors.  Here is butterfly #73.



It's funny, even though I basically copied the card from yesterday, it still took me almost one hour to make.  I wanted to change things up a bit, so it wasn't exactly the same card.  Sometimes that can be the hardest thing to do.  I layered the butterfly strips on a slightly wider card, so you see a little border on each side.  I didn't have a ribbon to match so I used card stock as the accent.  I also wanted to change the greeting design, so you can see another idea there.

Supplies:

Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set - 120501 clear, 117002 wood
Elegant Eggplant Card Stock - 105126
Melon Mambo Card Stock - 115320
River Rock Card Stock - 108640
Bitty Butterfly Punch - 129406
Stampin' Dimensionals - 104430
SNAIL Adhesive - 104332
Glue Dots - 103683 
Stampin' Trimmer - 126889
Color Coach - 120148


 
I used the Color Coach to pick the colors for this card.  If you are struggling to put colors together, this is a great tool!  Most of the time I like to play with colors to see what I come up with.  If you would rather just flip through and find the colors already coordinated, then this is the tool.  I forget I have it sometimes.  : )  I hope you enjoyed this colorful version.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly
