Papertrey Ink challenge butterflies



Papertrey Ink is continuing with its anniversary challenges for customers and I still need two thank you cards for this weekend. So here is another thank you created using a limited edition set from last year called Iconic Images. I had to find it once I saw the vase and flowers.

I tend to shy away from oranges except in the Fall, so I made myself using brighter, bolder colors than I normally would, including raspberry, hibiscus burst and orange. The challenge was to use leaves and butterflies; I used the Martha Stewart branch punch and have 'leaves' on the stems for the flowers in the vase. Martha Stewart butterfly punch for just a light accent of butterflies fluttering near the flowers, with their flight traced using a black gel pen.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Iconic Images
Ink: Memento black, Stampin' Up orange, Pink passion, Hibiscus Burst, Kiwi Kiss, Glorious Green
Paper: PTI Raspberry, Hibiscus Burst, white, silver
Other: pink ribbon, silver cord, orange zest button, linen impression plate

Hi!

I really like this image...and good for you for working in some colors you usually use at certain times of the year only! That is a great challenge! I think I will take it on myself. Thanks for the idea.

That ribbon is gorgeous and I love the MS "leaves" with the button. What a great way to tie all of the colors from the stamped image and the rest of the card together!

Thanks for sharing!

Orange seems to be the new decorator color, but I am not quite embracing it yet!! I do like your combo here, though...great take on your challenge, friend!!
