Quick and Easy Birthday Card...CTD45

I needed a QUICK birthday card on Saturday, so I CASEd my own card that I made in February. The layout for both cards was inspired by a card in Papercrafts "Card Creations" Volume 6 magazine, page 37 by Rae Barthel. The color scheme is from the Color Throwdown challenge (CTD45).

This card took 15 minutes to make!! Love cards that are clean, simple, quick and easy :O) I stamped the green butterfly with SU! So Swirly jumbo wheel, and the pink butterfly with PTI Polka Dot Basics in white craft ink before punching.

I'm showing both the dark and light background photos of this card because I'm curious which one you think looks most striking...etc. I uploaded the dark background in SCS, but every time I look at it I second guess my selection. What do YOU think??

Thanks for checking in :O) Hope your week started off great!

Supplies are listed in my SCS gallery.

Cute card Kris! I like the open space in the swiss dots for the sentiment. And I am a white background kind of girl so I guess my vote is white :)

This is a tough one hun.. I think both ways look great. I do however prefer the white background which in my opinion makes the entire card just pop. I do so love them both...

I love both too, but I love the one where the sentiment is placed in the non cuttlebugged area!
