Fry-day Fluttering

I don't know about y'all, but I miss that lovely 85-degrees-most-days summer we had last year. We've been close to 100 day in and day out for weeks. Even here, in the Carolinas, that's hot! So, happy Fry-day everyone. If AJ gets out of the bed before noon, we'll head to the pool before it gets too wicked out.

But, hey, the AC is working (Thanks, Morris Jenkins!) and more time in the house means more time to papercraft.  That, and finally watch all of those episodes of Lost I never got to see.

But, I digress...
This 'fly is for Color Splash Week (My favorite week of the month!) at The Play Date Cafe. This month, the splash is green. Perfect with a fluttery creature for Flutter by Wednesday's open challenge.

All cardstock is Bazzill. (The squares are backed in a celery green. It just didn't show up well.) I took a bit of the black, inked a Cuttlebug embossing folder with white Color Box pigment ink, and ran it through. The butterfly is from a Unity set and the sentiment is Verve. The organza is from Michaels, and the green leaf ribbon, came from Really Reasonable Ribbon, a store I adore! (Hey, that rhymes!)

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave a comment, come back soon, and have a wonderful weekend!
