Butterflies are free . . . and orange!

Hello my darlins! Ruh roh . . . it's been a while since I posted anything . . . and Blogger has changed things up a bit! aacckkk!! So you'll forgive me if I goof this up, right?!! hehe! OK, so here's the deal, I was asked the other day to make a card for a friend's daughter . . . it's her 16th birthday! And it seems this young lady love, love, LOVES the color ORANGE!!! Me? I don't love orange quite so much! But I think I pulled it off with today's Sugar Nellie DT card . . . what'cha think?!

I tried to balance the orange a wee little bit with some soft aqua. I quite like the results, if I do say so myself!! This little sweetheart is "Butterfly Girl" . . . from the "Simply Sassy" Collection of Sugar Nellie stamps! Acckk!! I just checked, and it looks like "Butterfly Girl" is out of stock. BUT, do check out the rest of the adorable "Simply Sassy" art by Krista Smith . . . available in deliciously sweet rubber at Funky Kits  HERE. Care for a couple of side views?
