too much happy?

Hey friends!!  Super quick post sharing a card that I made last week using a Splitcoaststampers color combo.  I posted the card in my Splitcoast gallery, but decided to share it here, as well since it fits the current challenge over at Time Out (nature with a twist of animals... not sure if a butterfly counts, lol!).  Also posting this to the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge of anything goes.   Used some of my favorite Stampin Up! stamp sets on this one (Kinda Ecelectic, Butterfly Basics and Yippee-Skippee!).   The color combo was SU! Melon Mambo, Island Indigo and Sahara Sand.  I used Ranger's Pumice Stone distress ink since I don't have Sahara Sand and it is a good match.  Had fun going a little crazy with the stamping.  After I finished I decided to add some bits of stitching using silver metallic thread.  I used my PTI Stitching Line dies (is that what they are called??) and die cut to lines of holes and then added the stitching.  Threw a bit of washi tape on there, too!  The card is kinda funky, but I do like it. 

Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white, Stampin Up! Sahara Sand; Inks:  SU! and Ranger; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Dies:  PTI; Thread:  DMC silver metallic thread; My Mind's Eye washi tape
