You Made My Day-PP227

January 11, 2015

It's Sunday and time for another fun challenge at The Paper Players!  Ann is our hostess this week and she has chosen Crisp Cantaloupe, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand for our color palette.  There are so many possibilities with this beautiful combo!  We can't wait to see what you create!


My card this week features the new butterfly thinlits in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  I know this die will get a lot of use.  I think I was thinking of warmer days when I created this card.  I am not a fan of winter!!!

Ann, I added these pearls in your honor this week!  



 I cut the butterfly out twice.  Once in Lost Lagoon and once in the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper to make it have more dimension.

I always try to finish my cards while making them so, when I need a card, it is ready to be signed and sealed!



Thank you very much for stopping by my blog.  I love to hear from you so, if you can, please leave a comment!  It always makes my day to read them.

      5. Lovely and fresh - truly a breath of spring on this card! I need it, too! Winter has come once again and I am gravitating to colors that make me feel better. Those butterflies are incredible and using the DSP was such a wonderful idea! I will be CASEing this one! TFS

      11. This is gorgeous! I think this butterfly die is going to be a big hit! I especially like that you used papers from what I would consider a "masculine" DSP line for your beautiful background...it's perfectly soft and wonderful!

      13. I love the fresh feeling of spring your card brings - here's hoping it will soon be on its way! The double layer butterfly is gorgeous and I love the way you used the patterned paper for the top layer - it adds real interest. Pearls look great too :-) xx
