Love these colors...

It is 6:00 a.m. and the rain is coming down...This is a good rain, the kind that you love to hear. No thunder, just a steady downpour. And we really needed this rain. I love waking up to mornings like this...especially because I do NOT have to work today! Yeah!

On to the card...I used SU's Blue Bayou for the base and then Soft Sky Designer Series. The ribbon is white satin and the blue I got from WalMart. The flower is from the Pretties kit and I colored it with Soft Sky. I used the Nestabilities round petite circles and scallops. The stamp is Stampendous Flowerfly...You would not believe how many times I use this stamp...it is just a favorite of mine. I used turquoise glitter embossing powder and a Swarovski Crystal to top off the flower and antena...Did I spell that right?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...Thanks for the visit !

The rainy day has made me very lazy. At least you are making cards and blogging. I am just vegging in front of the TV and decided to check my blog for a sec. I think I am going to go read my book for a while.

Blue Sky is one of my favorites and you can't go wrong with butterflies. Very soft, soothing card which can be used for many different occasions.

Your card is so lovely, Velta! This soft blue and white is a favorite combo of mine. I, also, love waking up to a steady downpour in the morning--pour a cup of coffee and head to my stamp room. Pure bliss! Of course, usually I have to go to work, but occasionally there's that perfect day. It rarely rains here in the summer, though.
