CR84FN #46

Yesterday I posted some masculine birthday cards made for Susan's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge.  Today I went in the complete opposite direction and made a soft and feminine card for the CR84FN challenge to use soft pink and yellow. 

I stamped Hero Arts edged fabric with flowers in VersaMagic pixie dust and cut it out.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut out the butterfly and added a few gems for sparkle. Finally, I added a simple sentiment stamped in Memento London Fog, as black seemed too harsh on such a soft card. 

A super simple design, yet I'm embarrassed to say how long I fiddled around with it! :)

I love these soft colors together! Beautiful background and perfect pinked edges! Sometimes the simplest cards take a lot of fiddling. You made it look easy.
