{Color Makes Me Happy}

 Just like my blog post title says, color makes me HAPPY! I finished this card this morning and couldn't wait to share it on my blog. I love the color splash of one of the newest releases from Cosmo Cricket "Salt Air". I must get more of this paper! All of the patterned paper I used in this card is from the Salt Air 6x6 paper pad. I stitched around the edges, and then used my edge distresser to give the edges a nice tattered appearance. The pretty butterfly image is from Inkadinkado's new cling rubber stamp collection that I heat embossed with black embossing powder and colored with a sponge and 3 of my A Muse Studio pigment ink pads. The fun bluish ribbon is from the Flutter collection by Making Memories. I have wanted to use it on a card every since I bought it! The yellow ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket. The sentiment is from the A Muse Studio set "Contemporary Greetings". And finally I finished off the card with a big yellow button tied with twine from A Muse Studio. I am playing along with lots of challenges today! So much color, love it!
