Just Us Girls #29...Happy Birthday LISA!

Hello friends!  It's time for a very SPECIAL Just Us Girls color challenge!  This week we have made birthday cards for our lovely Lisa Kind...surprise Lisa!  I hope you'll join us in wishing Lisa a very happy birthday!!  Our wonderful Maria has chosen a beautiful color pallette for us this week. 
Isn't it a sweet color combination?
I brought out these pretty K&Co stamps to create a garden scene and used Stampin Up! ink colors Kiwi Kiss, Lavendar Moon, and Pretty in Pink.

I wanted to calm the lilac ink a bit so I covered the butterfly with clear glitter.  I do love a little glitter ;)

So what do you think?  Ready to make something with these pretty spring colors?  Make it a birthday card for a twist.  Check out the Just Us Girls design team for lots of inspiration:

Oh my gosh I love this Dana - it's beautiful and springy and airy and the Bfly is "da bomb" with all of her glitter :-) Thanks for helping pull off a fast one on Lisa. Have a great weekend.

LOVE your card! It is so Springy - is that even a word???!!! LOVE the glitter on the butterfly! Pretty, pretty!

Did you ever watch the movie "Young Frankenstein?" When Frankenstein begins to wake up he begins groaning, sort of excitedly... THAT'S the sound I just made when your card popped up on the screen! I just KNEW some delicious JUGS creation was going to dazzle me, but this SURPRISED me with it's extra special, colorful BIRTHDAY goodness! Yipeee! {Happy Birthday, LISA! - what a great time of year to be born! Hee Hee} Knocked it out of the park, you did, indeed, sweet Dane!

LOL! I've been on the online hunt for some sweet girly bedding for my girl this if those butterflies were Princesses or Princess-esque, I'd be in business!! But, since the colors are spot on, I'm definitely leaning in for a closer look....and even closer since you've made a card from it. Sweet, soft, and oh so fantastically you, adding that glitter to sparkle and soften up your butterfly! :>
