sweet sunday sketch #30


This is for the Sweet Sunday Sketch #30.  I really stepped outside my color box and used purple!!!  I don’t usually go for purples and pinks or pastel colors that often, but this butterfly was so pretty I just had to get it.  Now I have to force myself to use more purple, which is kind of fun.  I also am submitting it to the clean and simple challenge at Splitcoast Stampers since I used bling!

I have no idea which company made the purple papers.  Isn’t that sad.  This is probably one of the first paper packs I have ever purchased (so it might be close to 4 years old or more).  I’m thinking it might be from one of the early “The Stack” stacks, but it is definitely from a time before I separated my paper out by company instead of color (for just this reason mind you).

I stayed pretty simple so the butterfly could shine.  I ran the white cardstock through a Cuttlebug houndstooth embossing folder to give it some texture.  I wasn’t completely sold on the houndstooth earlier, but I’m really loving it.  Then I used my Spellbinder’s Labels Two die to create the tag with a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
