Elegant Butterfly Trio Card

Hello! I hope your Monday was enjoyable. I've been pretty busy today but I was able to complete this Elegant Butterfly Trio Card. The colors are from this weeks challenge at The Paper Players to use Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, and Rich Razzleberry. I really like all these colors and I'm sad Baja Breeze will be retiring soon. So, I couldn't pass up this challenge. The challenge at Cards in Envy is to use Things with Wings and the Elegant Butterfly punch and Papillon Potpourri stamp set was the perfect answer to their challenge. I did a little embossing for the Pile It On challenge and I'm linking this card to the Make It Monday anything goes challenge. That about sums it up. Thanks for stopping by!
Elegant Butterfly Trio Card Supplies*:
  • Paper: Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White card stock.
  • Stamps: Papillon Potpourri wood mount stamp set.
  • Inks: Classic stampin' pads in Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, and Rich Razzleberry.
  • Other Stuff: Big Shot, Framed Tulips embossing folder, Elegant Butterfly punch, Baja Breeze ribbon, rhinestone basic jewels, and stampin' dimensionals.
