This week, Trish named Twinshappy as our Queen for the Day! Stacy has an AMAZING gallery!!! So many beautiful cards and lots of adorable and sweet ones too! Now, I know I took on way more than I should try, but I fell in love with this gorgeous card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2341853
Wow! This is so pretty! So I decided to give it a go. I also have been wanting to do the Color Challenge for this week. Kim selected such a wonderful combination of colors! They are for a Lucky Island Party...Lucky Limeaid, Island Indigo and Pool Party.
I used the Spellbinder's Radiant Rectangles for the main frame of the card. I cut out two and attached at the very top. The flowers are white nylon flowers in Irene's RAK that reminded me of daisies and I added the brads and die cut leaves. (thank you Irene!) I left off the ribbon and lace, as I didn't really have the right color. The butterfly is a Prima and in real life is very sparkly...couldn't quite capture that in the photo and it is very late here now!
Stacy, a pleasure to look through your awesome gallery!!! Thank you for your kind comments on my cards too!!! Kim LOVE the colors and great job hosting, Trish, thank you too!!!

Wow, you DID take on an awesome card to case, but you came up with a FABULOUS creation of your own, Kathleen! Your butterfly is adorable and those brads add so much to these already pretty flowers! Way to go with the cc and queen challenge too! Love it~
