Make It Monday

It's a dreary Monday and the laundry pile is being worked on while I am intermittently working on a card for the new Make It Monday Challenge on the Papertrey Ink blog. Stephanie Gold is challenging us to create a mixed background texture and has a great tutorial HERE

I stamped a floral background using images from PTI's Butterfly Folk stamp set.  The sparkle doesn't show in the photo but I sprayed Smooch Spritz over the butterfly.  I die cut two tags from PTI's Keep It Simple Frames die set to make the green border.  I love the texture that PTI's Quatrefoil cover plate die creates with white on white!  The sentiment is from the Mat Stack 1 Collection by PTI.  I'm also entering this into the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

INK: Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Green Parakeet (PTI); Stone (Reverse Confetti); Versafine Onyx Black.

The irony of this card is that I had a beautiful black butterfly sitting on my porch when I went to retrieve a package delivered by UPS!  How cool is that?!

This is fabulous, Wanda! I love the mixture of colors and texture. The butterfly makes a perfect focal point. Beautiful design!

Beautiful, Wanda! Love the florals at the top, and the darling butterfly medallion. Have to go check out Smooch Spritz. Looks like an easy way to add sparkle!
