Hi stampers, boy I sure am having trouble getting over this cold. Anyway a funny thing happened today. Have you ever had card stock or scrapbooking paper that you know you should use but just can't seem to match it up. Well lucky for me Stampin Up does all that for us.

When the new In Colors came out I immediately liked the Pink Pirouette, (my fav color anytime), the Baja Breeze, Pacific Point (blues) and the green Kiwi Kiss but the orange Tango Tangerine well it was ok but............

Well today I decided I just had to use some. So I put this card together using three of the In Colors and guess what they look great together!

I cut a square out of a piece of card stock and first sponged the inside of this square lightly with Pacific Point. Then I stamped the images; the butterfly first on a slant in the upper right hand corner and it is stamped out of the box shaded area. Then I figured that I could stamp the leaf branch one on the top of the shaded square one on the bottom of it and one in the middle, then I just used the stamp without reinking for the second generation stamp in between the other three. Then the sentiment was stamped underneath the butterfly.
