two challenges - one card

Good morning!

I am submitting today's card to two challenges:  The Play Date Cafe:


 and Cas-ual Fridays:


The colors of pink carnation, orange sherbet and lemonade are so very pretty together.  And, I have always loved square cards, even though it takes more postage to send one.


The color of the cardstock for this card is much more yellow (lemonade) than the photo shows.  We are getting some much needed rain here today, so the lighting wasn't so great.

I found a really cute BoBunny stamp set this week and used pink and orange Brilliance ink pads to stamp one of the butterflies from that set. For the bodies of the butterflies, I used the Memory Box Darla butterfly die and trimmed them to fit.   

Hope you have a great weekend!

I, too, love the square format but hate the extra postage! Love how you were able to use the die with this cute stamp. The layout of this card is so perfect - and the colors are so brilliant! This is a total winner.
