You Inspire Me

Happy Tuesday!
Wet and rainy here in Montreal, but still nice and warm for being winter!

It's time for a new challenge to start at Tuesday Throwdown!  It feels like forever since I did a Tuesday Throwdown post with the holidays and everything.

The theme for this week is Wild About You, which translates to Use Stripes!  I love using stripes!  Almost as much as polka dots :)
Our awesome sponsor this week is the fabulous Lawn Fawn!!  I just love Lawn Fawn, seriously can't get enough of them...and they were so sweet in providing materials for the DT to use on our projects!!

I have used the Flutter By set.  I just love all the butterfly and flower shapes, and the fact that there are several sizes and styles to mix and match!!  It took me a little while to really work out what I wanted to do on my card.  I wanted it simple, but to still really stand out.  After watching some inspiration videos on this set and looking up ideas, I settled on doing a stained glass style coloring with the butterfly.

And since the Polaroid frames have been super popular right now, I went with that for my background.  I chose a fun green paper and then stamped some little flowers in a coordinating green ink so that they were subtle on the paper.  Then finished the card off with the sentiment and a cute little flower!  Simple and sweet!...which seems to be the way my cards are going, not much detail, just a few things to make it pop.

Join in the fun with us this week!  And check out the rest of the design teams creations, they are fabulous!!  Also help us in welcoming our new teammates!  On team A we have Judith and Valerie, and on team B we have Lynn!!
