Thank You Card To Bring In Summertime!

I have been working with my stash of patterned papers and believe me when I tell you that I have a ton! Can you relate? I am on a mission to use up some of this paper before I spend another dime on more...wish me luck!

I created a 5" x 7" card base with white cardstock. I then cut a piece of patterned paper from a beautiful paper pack (Bountiful) from Hot Off The Press, and attached that to the front of the card. The beautiful butterfly is a 3-D sticker from Paper Studio.
This is the inside of the card and is another sheet of patterned paper from the same paper pack. I used a die and my Big Shot to cut out the white panel to write my message to the recipient. The small green butterfly came from my stash and is a sticker.
From the scraps I covered the flap of the envelope to created a complementary set. I love decorating my envelopes to match my cards.

Bumble Bee Marci Such a Delight

I hope you are having a Happy Wednesday. Today I have created a card for this week's Card Concept challenge #11. This week they have a fun color combo for us play with, Black, Gray, Yellow and White. I also used CASology's challenge #97 for the theme of this card - Bee!

Here is my card:

I love this color combo! To keep with my CAS style I kept all of my stamping to the bottom section of my card. By doing this it still gives me lots of white space. I did however, pop Marci (Lala Land Crafts) on an Action Wobble. These are so fun! I printed Marci out on 80# Pure Luxury cardstock from Gina K. Designs and used Copics to color her. Isn't she just adorable!
