A Lemon Butterfly

Hi!  Here with a card for the Paper Player's challenge this week.  A sketch challenge brought to us by the super talented Lesley!   Once again I created a card based on what supplies I had sitting on my kitchen counter (which doubles as my crafting place).  One of the things sitting on the counter was my DCWV Lemon Flower mat stack.  Of all the mat stacks I have purchased I think I love this one the best!  The colors are just so bright and yummy!   And I just love the addition of the silver/grey... it looks so fabby with the yellow and  green.   The only stamping on the card is the sentiment from My Favorite Things.  The butterfly was created using my SU! Beautiful Butterlies die.



Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & new leaf; PP:  DCWV Lemon Flower; Stamps:  MFT; Ink:  PTI True Black; Die:  SU! Beautiful Butterfly; Ribbon:  SU! Basic Grey satin; gems; Fiskars corner rounder

WOW, Rosie, you make it sound simple, but this is one gorgeous design! I love the sunny colors and bold sentiment. So glad you joined us at The Paper Players this week!

Hello Rosie,
Question, would you have placed this gorgeous butterfly if you did not have to follow the sketch?
Of course it would look good with or without, but, and there is always a but, by adding the element it creates interest, dimension and it has a tactile quality, the papers are wonderful and I can see how you love them. It is a beautiful creation.

I'm a little late in posting a comment but just had to tell you I love that card! Were both butterflies done with an SU die? The card is just the way I like to do cards. I use a lot of butterflies.
