Papillon Potpourri Meets Kinda Eclectic

I love the ray of sunshine this card provides, how about you??

It's summer time in Michigan, finally!!

We start our card with a Whisper White card base, then added a layer of Tempting Turquoise card stock.  I've neglected my Tempting Turquoise paper lately (it seems I always reach for Bermuda Bay card stock instead!), so it was fun to play with it again on this card!  I love the bright summer feel of this color, too.

Next, we stamped........

- our bright sun, yellow splotches and large butterfly in Crushed Curry ink

- the two other butterflies and the dots across the bottom of the card in
Tempting Turquoise ink

- the honeycomb background in Soft Suede ink - we actually stamped this stamp off on a scratch piece of paper first, then stamped it on the card, to give it a softer feel
