Soft Green and Light Aqua

Saturday was quite muggy around central Connecticut, and I spent it at my newly installed but still disorganized craft desk! I was excited by the Colour Create Challenge posted on Thursday, to use the colors of soft green and light aqua. It is a delightfully happy combination! I have used it to make this card, not only for Colour Create, but also for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge and the Creative Inspirations Challenge.

Flying Tilda stamp--Magnolia-licious storeGo Girl sentiment--Kolette Hall
Congratulations-Stampin Up!
Designer papers:
My Mind's Eye, "Totally Girl"
Doodlebug Design, "Spring Medley"
Soft green and aqua solid--stash

Quickuts star dieNestabilities scalloped oval die
Spellbinders Floral Accents dies
Stickles "Diamond"
Copic markers
Distress ink "Broken China"
Star sparklies--stash

Here is a close-up so you can see her sparkly wings--even at my age,
sparkly things are so much fun!

I added a big button that has a cat's eye appearance
to make the star look bigger and more prominent.
I did some decorative stitching around the Tilda image.

Here is the inside:

I can think of so many occasions for this...might be a graduation card for my niece!
Enjoy the rest of you weekend!
