Bright Butterfly & Lunch Out

Good morning! The baby is taking a longer nap than usual, so I managed to get Julee's Mojo Monday sketch done. Here is her sketch:

Here is my card:

It is a bit out of my comfort zone where color is concerned, but those were the colors I was drawn to to color the butterfly, and the card grew around that! It is funny, when I first started stamping, I used TONS of bold brights, and now I very rarely use ANY of them! so to have three of them on one card is crazy for me!! I am still in love with these butterflies from Unity, though. They come with such pretty words, too. It is a very inspirational stamp kit!

Today is dh's last day at school, and I'm going to take the baby up to have lunch out with him and a few of his co-workers, who dh claims want to see me, but I know they really just want to see the baby! It's the reality of my life! LOL! I don't blame them, my baby is as cute as can be! Here's a colorful picture of him, since this post is all about color!

You'd want to have lunch with him too, wouldn't you? :-) Well, have a great day! Happy Stamping and Happy Summer Vacation! Wahoo!!!!

Stamps: Butterfly Beauty and Oh Happy Day! (dotted background) by Unity
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Yo-yo Yellow and Basic Black by SU!, watercolor paper by Fabriano

Just beautiful. I love how the black with the bold colors really makes it look so crisp. Thanks for playing! :)
