Papertrey Posse Parade of Blogs



Finally, I'm back! I've been on the road for the last 4 days, but I finally reached my destination and hope to get my fingers inky again today!

Today's card is the last of a set I shared last week, but it was actually the first of the set that I made. Color challenge #2 at Papertrey Posse inspired the entire project! The challenge was to use Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, and Dark Chocolate.

I started with this gorgeous patterned paper from American Crafts. I really wanted that elegant pattern to take center stage, so I kept the other elements fairly simple. The sentiment is Fiskars and the butterfly is from PTI's Butterfly Dreams, colored with a couple of Copic markers.


Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Ocean Tides, Aqua Mist, white)
Patterned paper: American Crafts
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Butterfly Dreams), Fiskars (All Year Greetings)
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Copics
Tools: Spellbinders (circle, scalloped circle dies), EK Success (border punch)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (button), Queen & Co. (pearls), Michaels (ribbon), DMC floss, thread

I'll keep the details to a minimum so you can check out the rest of the creations from the Papertrey Posse! Thanks for stopping by today!
