Birthday Blocks of Color

Hello, and good afternoon fellow papercrafter and blog readers! I've got a card for the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge, which is to use blocks of color on your project. 

I picked out four different cardstock colors which I thought went well together. Then I cut strips from them, all the same size, and trimmed them all down to the same size squares. Or something close to squares. I'm not quite sure they are exact squares. :) Then I adhered them all to a panel of cardstock.  I embossed the butterflies in some clear embossing powder, and added 2 more squares popped up with foam tape and stamped with a butterfly and sentiment. I also added a border to the panel, and then adhered it to the card with some foam tape. 

Hope you have a great day! There was actually some snow on the ground here this morning! And it's still cold...we have a fire going in the woodstove today. So the house is REALLY warm. I'm wearing a t-shirt! 

Jesus saves!
