A Birthday Card for 4 Crafty Chicks

The colors on 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge blog caught my eye and I couldn't resist!  After using the Fill in the Blank stamp set for The Playdate Cafe challenge (see my card HERE), I wanted to use the butterflies this time.  Once again I dug around in my scraps for pattern paper to use - maybe someday my scraps will dwindle down.... DOUBT IT!

Here are the colors on 4 Crafty Chicks:

I used the following Close To My Heart colors Sunset, Olive, Honey and Cotton Candy.
I used the embossing/sanding technique on the Olive cardstock to add a little texture.   The Honey paper is from Mayberry, small butterflies are from Sweetheart and the large butterfly is from Olivia.   All are VERY different paper packs but these blended so well when put together.
