Hello!  We’re back to another color challenge week at CAS Colours & Sketches, with some bright, fresh springtime colors.

I was inspired by the current Less is More challenge to use some of my older stamps once again.  The butterflies seemed to go well with the color scheme, and the cursive font of the sentiment ties in with the swirls on the butterflies and the background blocks.  I stamped off the blocks once on scrap paper before stamping them onto the card.  The butterflies were stamped on a scrap of white cardstock and fussy cut.  I bent the wings up a bit and glued only the middles of the butterflies to the card, so there’s a little dimension there, but the wings will fold back down easily when the card is mailed to its recipient.
