Paper Players Color Challenge

Color Challenges are always fun!  Lesley has a great one for you this week!  Here is my sample, using the new hostess set, Precious Butterflies.

The crumb cake cardstock background has the flourish stamped in Basic Gray, along with stamped off butterflies in Baja Breeze.  The floating butterflies were stamped in versamark on Baja Breeze then embossed with Iridescent Ice powder.   The sentiment is two layers;  the bottom layer is the circle of butterflies stamped in Baja Breeze on whisper white, and the top sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade on vellum.  Both are punched out with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  Add some seam binding and pearls...and done!

Be sure to check out the other Design Team samples, and play along!  Can't wait to see what you create!

  6. Beautiful card Lauri ... love the vellum sentiment, so soft and pretty which is just perfect as it sets off these delicate butterflies just beautifully!!!

  7. Oh wow, this is pretty! Love the soft background stamping of butterflies and the glitter butterflies are beautiful! The sentiment on vellum is the perfect way to soften the strength of the Poppy! Great job with the color challenge!

  10. Love those sparkly butterflies! I especially like the "pop" of Poppy Parade. I love how you layered the vellum, too. That is one of the items I have been trying to use more lately. Such a beautiful card! :)
