Color Throwdown Challenge #130

Today I'm sharing a card using some of the first paper I released with My Time Made Easy!  I don't use it near enough!!  The colors are unique and vibrant...and almost perefectly complement today's Color Throwdown challenge (CTD130) palette that Tammy selected:
The pink is a little darker and there is no saffron, BUT, that's easily rectified!  Add a saffron butterfuly using the Flutters and Flowers cut file!  I also used the Rambling Rose cut file I created last year.  This is one of my most popular cut files...and if you've seen what Lauren has done with this, you'll understand why!  She works magic, I tell ya!  This is my humble attempt to replicate her method (using a wire curler instead of tweezers).  Isn't the dimension fabulous?  The white scalloped panel is another sneak peek at one of my new cut files coming out in March.  Keep an eye out on the new release...starting on the 26th ;]  I layered it on my Killer Curves cut file and also used my Border Builders Elegance Scallop cut file for my two, decorative trims under the tangerine ribbon.  My paper with the script and butterfies came from the Shutter-fly pack and the striped paper came from the Fluttering-by pack.  My sentiment, "Grow Old Without Growing Up" is from the Sensatinal Sentiments set.  I stamped it on my Sentiment Flag die by Lil Inker (aka Laura).  I thought the saying went perfectly with the fun loving paper :]  Could be a birthday card or simply an inspirational card.  Haven't decided yet :]
My layout was inspired by the Mojo179 sketch this week...such a fun design!
Alright...that's all I have for you today, but my CTD sisters have some gorgeous projects for you!  Check em out:

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a short week like I do :]
