The Paper Players 341:

Happy Sunday!  It has been a rather chilly weekend with snow in the forecast, but I was out gardening regardless.  I see my lilies are starting to peek through the surface which is so exciting as I love to watch perennials grow!

This week at The Paper Players, Sandy's SKETCH challenge is this little beauty:

I thought this sketch would be great to showcase my little vellum butterfly which I layered in three and did a bit of purple ombre inking.  I also carried the ombre inking theme into my background as well.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Skipping Stones Design Beautiful Botanicals

Die cuts:  Simon Says Stamp ButterfliesReverse Confetti Tall Stripe Panel
Reverse Confetti Class Act, My Favorite Things Blueprints 2
Frosting: Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black, Stampin' Up! cardstock, Stampin' Up! inks

Please be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team at The Paper Players, leave some love, and play along!!

Cheers all!

Deanne, I love your ombre effect. It immediately reminded me of a party dress my mother bought me for my 6th birthday. I'd forgotten all about that dress until I saw your card - so thank you for taking me down memory lane :-)

I love the effect on the butterfly, too. Such a gorgeous card
