Make a Wish

Have you seen the current Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World?  This hits me on all cylinders - the gorgeous colors, which make me think of the wonderful citrus fruits in Florida, and then, COOKIES!  Such a comfort food for me.......Here is Cath's photo inspiration:


Here's my first attempt using these colors:

TT Bright Bite

supplies: white cardstock, dps from Basic Grey Picadilly, Shine On, and Serendipity pads, Hero Arts 657773 Antique Flowers & Butterflies stamp and die-cut, The Craft's Meow Butterfly Kisses sentiment, VersaFine onyx black ink, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, gold, orange, bright pink and green gems

I decided to use this sentiment first, and then the idea of being surrounded by a flutter of butterflies in these colors came from there...... 


Also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's "Clean & Simple" challenge this week:
