PPA140 - Papillon Potpourri

This week's challenge over at Pals Paper Arts is a colour challenge using a combination directly inspired from Stampin' Up!'s Color Coach.  

I am participating in a Holiday Catalogue card swap with my upline's group next Friday and the hostess stopped by to pick my swaps up for me on her way up to the cottage.  I wanted to enclose a thank you card and used this challenge as a starting point.

There are three different butterflies in the Papillon Potpourri stamp set that can be punched out with the Elegant Butterfly punch and I had trouble deciding which one(s) to use.  After trying a couple of different combinations this is what I decided looked best.  I was happy with the card and as I looked at it a little bit longer it dawned on me that rhinestones would add a nice touch of bling.

Stamps:  Kindness Matters and Papillon Potpourri
Inks:  Marina Mist, Real Red and Summer Starfruit
Paper:  Marina Mist, Real Red and Whisper White Card Stock and 2012-2014 In Color DSP Stack
Accessories:  Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Scallop Trim Border Punch and Elegant Butterfly Punch

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!


  1. The Rhinestones do add just the right touch as your butterflies flitter off! I love how you used the color for this week's challenge! Thanks for joining us at the PPA!

  2. Your butterflies are so sweet - and so dressed up with the touch of bling!
