Dynamic Duos #5 - Clean, Simple and Sassy!

Hi there! Wow, what a crazy week! I'm a little behind on the creative endeavors, I'm so sorry. I DO have my card for the new Dynamic Duos Challenge ready to go, though. It is the first week of the month and we are focusing on a Bold and Sassy Color combo that I just love: Real Red and Island Indigo.

I needed a card for a friend to simply tell her she was fantastic and found my inspiration from this week's Clean and Simple - Fall to Layout #193:
Ok, I know...I seem to love that butterfly die. I use it a LOT, huh? But it is really versatile and I love the dimension it adds to cards. I popped up my layered butterflies on some simple circle punches to make them stand out a wee bit more on the mix of new Summer Smooches DSP. Over all, this was a fairly easy card to put together. Sometimes, just using some pretty paper and a few dies and punches do the trick for a fun CAS card for a friend...who IS really awesome, by-the-way! :) 
Thanks for stopping by to visit today! I sure hope you will join us this week over at Dynamic Duos. The challenge is open until 12:00 noon (PST) on Thursday, June 7th. Please stop by and visit the rest of the lovely ladies on the Design Team to see what they have created with these bold and sassy colors:
