PPA Challenge #260 – Butterfly Wishes

I am playing along, once again, with the Pals.  This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge.



I reversed the sketch, probably because I am right handed and it felt “right”!  The card is Basic Black with a Very Vanilla mat topped with a beautiful design from the Timeless Elegance DSP collection.

The butterfly is cut using both butterfly dies that Stampin’ Up has available now.  The bottom layer is from the Bold Butterfly Framelits and the more intricate two layers are using the Butterflies Thinlits.  The top layer is cut from the reverse side of the DSP just to give it a little interest.  The butterfly body is embellished with pearls.  I stamped the sentiment tag with the honeycomb stamp from the Butterfly Basics set then used Versa Mark and stamp the actual sentiment, also from the same set, and embossed it in black.  And just because I am trying to use more of my Framelit collections, I choose to cut both tags from the Chalk Talk Framelits.  I recently put all my framelits on magnetic sheets and displayed them in my craft room.  You can read about that here.  This has really made a difference when trying to come up with designs.

Again, I used a sentiment from the Butterfly Basic stamp set for the inside.  For a little added interest, I used the Bitty Butterfly punch and put a scrap piece of DSP underneath.  The envelope is lined with the same DSP for a finished look.

Hope you have a very happy Sunday.  Thanks very much for stopping in and please come back again.
