Birthday Blooms n Butterflies

Ok, so two things...
1- when I saw Dawn's Raspberry Suite color challenge #12, I was a lil wary, I was like "mmm i dunno how i feel about these together..." end result = love them!
2- i have been secretly longly for the Martha Stewart butterfly punch... well thanks to Michael's 20% off coupon, I have finally invested!
The sketch was from this week's Sweet Stop {SSS13}, even though I didn't use the "Christmas" theme {I don't like making cards until after Thanksgiving... Thanksgiving is way too often skipped over and it's my fav holiday! ironic since I'm a vegetarian... but I love getting to see both my parents' extended sides of the family}

materials: {paper} pink- DCWV, flower- me & my big idea, flower- The Paper Company, others from stash {brads} makingmemories, {raffia} kraft, {stamp} SU!, {ink} stampcraft coffee, {other} Martha Stewart punch, button from stash
