Bright Butterfly Among the Flowers

Today on Splitcoaststampers, the challenge was to use soft aqua, soft yellow, and white. Your option was to use a bright color. Mine is the orange butterfly.

I used my Martha Stewart stamp & punch flower and the hydrangea punch by Martha Stewart on my white cardstock. I   placed the Baja Breeze and So Saffron cardstock behind it. Stamped my butterfly and added a ribbon and sentiment.

Stunning effect with the paper behind the punched out flowers! This is the perfect clean and simple card!

It is still storming here and has been since 4ish. We even got to hear the tornado sirens earlier. Gotta love spring in Alabama.
