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!!!
