Butterfly Birthday

This isn't for a sketch challenge, color challenge, inspriation challenge or any other type of challenge believe it or not. I just felt like stamping last night after the kiddos were in bed and this just happened. Once again I started with the Color Coach, actually closed my eyes, and spun! It landed on Always Artichoke- a favorite anyway!- which included Brilliant Blue (another of my favorites), Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant and Bravo Burgundy. Well, I thought I'd get one of those other colors in at the last minute, then didn't and I'm OK with that! I used two neutrals, kraft and vanilla instead.

I felt like messing around with my Texturz Plates and the Big Shot so I kind of went there next, chose the plate I wanted, and let that help me decide my stamp set. I actually used two different Texturz Plates- one on the blue and one on the Kraft. I intended to highlight the texture with either piercing or a gel pen then decided that would be overkill once the card was done. That's one of those things that could ruin a perfectly fine card, you KWIM??

So thanks for stopping by! I'm off to play today's MOJO Monday sketch, which I always look forward to. Why don't you play along with me?!

Have a great day!
