PP503 Hello Beautiful

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well so far!  Joanne is our fabulous hostess this week at the Paper Players, and she is really challenging us!  Check out this amazing color palette:

When I want to create a card with multiple colors like this, I usually choose small images in the same shape or size; but I went a wee bit different this time!  I used the butterflies from Butterfly Gala, stamping them in Night of Navy and using the other challenge colors to fill them in.  Here we go:

I began with the FMS sketch for this week:

I had a strip of  Pool Party DSP lying on my desk and I found a cool embossed cover plate panel that my sweet friend Michele gave me, so I combined the two, layering the cover plate over the polka dots with some dimensionals.  I stamped several butterflies and punched them out with the matching punch and adhered them along the opening:
The sentiment is from the same set, stamped on a Stitched Shape square, and I added a couple more butterflies and embellished it with some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems:
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Little Treats and added a few more butterflies that I had left over!
This is such a fun, cheerful color combination! I hope you'll be able to find something to stamp with these colors!  Check out what all the other designers did at the Paper Players, then share yours with us too!  Thanks so much for popping in today!

Last weekend at my niece's surprise birthday party, Sawyer wanted to see her goats!  He said they tickled his hand!!!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I watched Mary make her card last night on You Tube and couldn't wait to see what you created. I LOVE it! The colors are growing on me especially with butterflies involved. Sawyer is too cute and goats are so fun.

LeAnne this card is a showstopper. All that white makes my CAS loving heart so happy. Wonderful use of the colors and it should have been the top card at FMS this week - it stood out from everything else in the gallery! Absolutely gorgeous
