Its Your Day to Celebrate

I finally found time to ink up my Color Pop Butterflies stamps and work with the kit.  The kit comes with some already background colored papers with the butterflies showing so that you can use the stencils that are included to create a card in a hurry.  Before making other cards without the prepackaged papers and stencils I wanted to try my hand with the preprinted papers included in the kit.  For the different colors some are stamped off first to get a lighter color with full strength on top.  The kit can be seen at:  http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2016/04/introducing-color-pop-butterflies.html

 My card is inspired by Betty Velman's creation using different colors, text and stamping in all of the elements.
