Hello there! This week at The Paper Players, the always fabulous LeAnne is our challenge hostess. She has selected a beautiful trio of colors to play along with: Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand and Pistachio Pudding. These colors are GORGEOUS together!
I decided to finally take my Butterfly Thinlits Dies out of the package for this card. I have had them for months and kind of forgot about them. That is a sign that you have too many things in my stamp studio, right? Ha! I wanted the card to be "kind of" shabby chic but still clean, so I kept the embellishments to a minimum and sponged some ink around the edges. Of course, I had a LOT of help from my kitten Sophie with the sponges, as she kept stealing them off my desk and running out of the room.
I used the Spring Flowers Embossing folder for some texture on the background, along with adding a little baker’s twine bow. I wanted the focus to be on the big butterfly, so I decided on a tiny banner sentiment from the (ret.) Banner Blast stamp set, dressed up with one itty bitty pearl.
Please join us over at The Paper Players this week!
The challenge will close Friday, May 15th, 2015 at Noon (PST).

Before I sign off, here is a photo of my little stamping helper back when she was a tiny baby and now. Sophie is 10 months old now and a fluffy, little trouble-maker. She is pretty adorable though, so she gets away with a lot. Have a great day! :)
