I rarely make 6×6 cards, but I should! I made this butterfly birthday card using a sketch from Simon Says Stamp. Since I wanted to have many layers, I knew I was going to need a bigger card.
I like the layout of his card. It really allows you to use lots of different patterned papers together. I used a retired paper pack from Stampin’ Up. The whole paper pack was the same color, but I wanted to add some accents. I paired it with black cardstock, and a little bit of olive green.
Butterfly rubberstamps are so popular right now. They are everywhere I look. The Birthday Wishes stamp is from the Inkadinkado Garden Party set. It’s one of those stamp sets that gets often.
I love these colors so they were really easy to work with. Bright pink and black always make a bold statement.

Great job on the color challenge and the sketch. I like the touch of green on the mat. It really makes it all pop out. Very pretty and soft.
The layers and colors of papers you chose are terrific:) I love this card. Your card is the best of those on the Simon Says website. You have a lot of talent and a great eye.

Pam, this is so beautiful! I love all the colors and the layers. You made it all work without be too much! Love the extra sentiment and flowers that weren’t on the sketch.
You did a great job with the inspiration photo and colors! 6×6 is a really big creative area – I’d probably take a day or two to finish a card that size! LOL
