I used to be obssessed with putting them on cards, but it's actually been a long time since I used one.
So when I saw this weeks Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger (I usually don't play, but honestly, it was hard not to after seeing the gorgeous inspiration pic)...

...I couldn't help myself.
Here is my take...

 The sentiment is embossed for a little more interest (and I went with the 'get well' sentiment because I never seem to have those on hand when I really need them)

Butterflies. Colors. I don't think it's hard to see how I was inspired. ;) I actually didn't have an orange, but I did have a small Colorbox Cat's Eye with a yellow I wasn't crazy about. So I inked up first with Worn Lipstick, then went over with the yellow inkpad. The yellow ink got contaminated, but since I didn't like the shade anyways, no harm was done.

And while we're at it, this card is also for this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge.

Well, I'm off to finish graduation party plans, trip to Europe plans, playing a game with my youngest brother plans, etc.
Thanks so much for stopping in!
