Fresh Fern Leaves CTD338


Do you have a favourite stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue? I'm sure that mine is Butterfly Basics. It isn't just the variety of butterflies that you have in stamps and Framelits (when you buy the bundle), it's the foliage and the postmark and that interrupted line that looks like an airmail envelope, they're all such super images. Oh, and I especially like the font on the sentiments too.

It was lots of fun to incorporate the fresh colours for Color Throwdown's challenge. I've used Old Olive, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake and it is a bit of a novelty for me to tie a bow ('cos I can't!) but the seam binding does seem to make it easier to tie at least a half-decent bow.

If I wasn't using a colour challenge, I would have been perfectly happy to stamp, and stamp off the fern leaf, tie the seam binding and add a greeting. However, the punch of colour given by adding the butterfly is so worth it and the post mark is pretty cute too.

Hope you are looking forward to a pleasant weekend,
Cheers
Rachel
