Papillon Potpourri for Pals Paper Arts 193


Todays card rad started out as a You and Me card for future use.  Then, thanks to modern technology and the reminder feature on my phone I was reminded of my sister in laws birthday this week.  Quick change of direction and I now have a birthday card.

I realized when I set out to make this card that I had been completely ignoring yellow colors lately, so I set out specifically to use yellow, specifically Crushed Curry today.  My layout was inspired by the Pals Paper Arts sketch number 193.


About my card
1. When I saw the circles I immediately thought of butterfly’s in place of the circles, probably becuse I had just received the stamp set papillon potpourri and I was itching to use them with the coordinating punches.

2. The card came together quickly but I have to say I originally thought of using a piece of kaleidoscope Designer series paper featuring crushed curry but it was too overwhelming. When I took it away it looked much cleaner and fresher.

Thanks for stopping by today.

What I used
Stamps: papillon potpourri, banner greetings, perfect pennants, ink, black stazon, crushed curry, paper, black, white, kaleidoscope DSP, Accessories, butterfly punches, glue dots, oval punch, candy dots.

  1. Such a nice balance of the Crushed Curry and Basic Black! You added lots of excitement with the various layered images. Nice take on this sketch, Lynn! Thanks for playing along with the PPA challenge this week.

  2. I love your card. The colors are beautiful together. And I really like the butterflies – I love using butterflies on my cards. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Lynn, this is darling! Using the little antennas (antenna?) on the butterflies adds a little touch of whimsey, and I love the white stamp on the black envelope! Thanks for joining us this week at Pals Paper Arts!
