My Favorite Color

My boys and my kindergarteners will be able to tell you that my favorite color is green. Even as a little girl my favorite color was always green. Nothing in my house, though, is green. I have red walls. Brick red. Not all the walls. The contrasting walls are a light brown. So as an adult, I now have a new favorite color in addition to green... I never thought about it until the challenge on the Raise the Bar blog - Challenge #15 Color Me Happy - use your favorite color on a card.

I like this Vivienne stamp by Kraftin' Kimmie. She is so sassy. I used this stamp on a previous post. So I was able to fit both of my favorite colors on this card. At first I didn't know if I liked it, but I really did after I colored her and added the flowers. (The flowers were added for Our Creative Corner challenge blog - which is to use blossoms. I would've used red half pearls with the green but I didn't have any.

The base is SU Riding Hood Red. The DP is from DCWV Mariposa Stack. I cut the shape with my cricut using a nesting template from Penny Duncan Creations. The flowers are primas. Vivienne was embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. The spacers and half pearls are from Stamp and Create. The brad is from my stash.

The next picture is the inside:

The butterfly is cut from the same DP and I added some stickles. (The blur is what I wrote. It is a birthday card for my friend in Washington.)
Thanks for looking!
