Color Inspiration 37

Today's card is for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge on her blog. Aren't these great colors! So fresh. Reminds me of spring. Of course they contain two of my fave colors, green and brown, so maybe that's why I love it so much! I really love all the cards I've seen at Splitcoast with the buttons on the tree. I know I'm behind the curve ball on this one, but I'm always a little late with the trends. Hey! At least I used all current Stampin' Up! supplies! So here's my card:






















Isn't it cute?! I know the buttons are considered Kiwi Kiss, but they look pretty darn close to Old Olive to me. I used a clear button over the sentiment (from Wow Flowers) to continue the button theme and it helps to highlight it. I didn't want the holes in the button to show, so I covered it with a little flower punch. I really love this Season of Friendship stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Word from Leadership is that it is NOT in the new Spring/ Summer catty. So if you want this set, you better hurry and buy it before Jan. 19th. I think this is my favorite set out of the Holiday Mini.

I totally forgot my friends birthday (it was on New Year's Eve!) so I think I'll be mailing this to her. I hope she doesn't read this!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!
