Paper Players 233 and CTD330 and JAI251

DSCF8079-001

Hi everyone!  It’s Sunday, and that means another Paper Players challenge!  I love Sandy’s sketches, and this one is no exception!  Here we go:



When the new Butterfly Thinlet first came out, I just had to use it, and I haven’t done a thing with it since!  So I thought it would be pretty with this sketch, but I did have to rotate it to make it fit on my thank you card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 233 Something To Say Butterfly Stampin Up

I also thought the colors from the Color Throwdown were lovely for a springy creation….we certainly need something like that on these cold days:



They listed their colors as light & dark green and orange, so I used some lovely Calypso Coral paper from Gold Soiree line and I diecut the butterfly pieces from Pistachio Pudding and Confetti Celebration DSP:

Although it’s hard to see here, the circular element is stamped in Pistachio Pudding using the outline floral image from Hello Darling, and the flowers and sentiment are from Something to Say; I used the same sets on the inside as well:

A few well-placed pearls added some elegance, and my card is ready to mail to one of my wonderful customers!  And since it is a thank-you card, I'm entering this in the Just Add Ink Just Add Thank You challenge as well!  I hope you’ll play along with our sketch this week…it’s a great one!  Check out what the other designers did as well:
Cassidy and Stephen made pizzas a couple nights ago:
