FBW103 - It's a Color Challenge!!

I just couldn't cut up this paper to make a card!! It was just too beautiful, so I decided to make a scrapbook page out of it. Unfortunately, I don't have the perfect picture to go with it. I plan on taking a fun picture of my daughter outside with butterfly wings on. Who actually makes the page before she even has the pictures? Craziness, I say!
Anywho...today is Flutter By Wednesday, and we have a wonderful color challenge for you! You need to use a butterfly, fairy, or angel and pair it up with the colors blue, green, and white. For my card, I used Stampin' Up colors...Old Olive and Taken with Teal. We would love to see your creation, so link it up HERE on our new linking system. But, don't forget to link to your specific card. All you need do is click on the title of your blog post, then copy the title in the tool bar. Link it the way you normally would. Some of our wonderful participants have been having some problems, so we thought a reminder would be helpful!
My awesomely talented team mates have some amazing creations for you this week!

Stamps: None
Paper: Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack, Taken with Teal CS, and Old Olive CS by Stampin' Up; Bazzill shimmer cardstock

I LOVE everything about this layout (and it's not crazy to make the page before the photo, it's just how crafty brains work). The punched butterflies blend perfectly with the design of the paper, and the colors are amazing, TRULY a work of art!
