Flowers & Butterflies

Hi everyone,


Hope that your week is going fine and that you are all well.


I have posted before that at times I take my inspiration from the colour choices in Design Series Papers and I must say one of my favourite papers at the moment is the Attic Boutique DSP in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.


The paper has colours: Poppy Parade, Pool Party, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Very Vanilla and Whisper White.


I wanted to use some yellow and I knew I had some Daffodil Delight ribbon, so used a section of the DSP with some Daffodil Delight on it.


So my colour choices are Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. 


I have used my ribbon, ‘bling’ of course and something that I rarely use - some pearls, so I have gone very girly!  I am collecting a number of cards Mum would like, so my choice for Mother’s Day will be interesting :)


The sketch for my card is from Sketchy Colors and you can see it here.


I have used the Just Believe stamp set and my Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  If you haven’t used this die, it embosses the butterflies and cuts them out in one go!  I keep the extra butterflies that I do not use in a container and they always come in handy.


The image was stamped in Daffodil Delight and sort of wiped with the Soft Suede inkpad before I stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock.


Here is my card:







Stamp set: Just Believe

Card: Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede

Accessories:  Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, 1/4” (6.4 mm) Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon (Retired), Basic Rhinestones, Pearls, Attic Boutique DSP,  Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



I nearly gave up with the layout because I could get the right look but once I added the other piece of DSP on the top section of the card, I was happy.
