Thursday Butterflies and Mist

Happy Thursday,

What are your favorite colors these days?  I have to say I am really stuck on grey, yellow and blue.  I can't get enough of them!  I was wanting a super quick project the other day.  I needed a break from DT work so I brought out one of my scrap bags filled with My Mind's Eye goodies and I created this card.  

First I used the grey and white checked paper.  I wanted to jazz it up a bit and I used my Studio Calico mask and sprayed it heavily and lightly in certain areas with Heirloom Blue from Studio Calico.  I let it dry and then I cut out different sizes of butterflies (I don't know about you but I LOVE butterflies).  The smaller ones I wrapped twine around the middle.  I then added some letter stickers by Cosmo Cricket and I called it a day.  I really love projects that take less then 30 minutes from start to finish!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new layout.  See you then!
Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Beautiful I love that mask....have to look out for it...I still like purple but I don't really scrap with that colour.....scrap wise I tend to go bright with reds and oranges and blues and a bit of green and yellow.....ok there is no single colour :D
