This month at the House of Cards we ask you to use a butterfly and/or our color palette.  I did both--no, no, not on the same card--your eyes are not deceiving you!  Honestly I had no intention of using the color palette but while I was coloring these strawberries unrelated to the challenge, it occurred to me how easy it would be to incorporate all those colors.  Dude!   I love it!  And now I want some yummy strawberries, my favorite fruit!

Do play along with us this month.  There are soooooooooooo many possibilities--who knew?!.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

And do also stop by the blogs of my teamies.  Always such fab creations to inspire us!
