Just Add Ink - Butterflies

Hello and welcome back!  This week at Just Add Ink (Just Add Ink blog) the theme is butterflies.  I was very excited to make my version of what I think of as an "emerging" butterfly.  I've seen this on several blogs and I think it's a pretty look.

Since I kind of spoke unkindly of Mint Macaron in my last post, I thought I should give it another chance with this card. The pretty designer series paper is from Pretty Petals paper stack.  It was adhered to a panel of Mint Macaron then run through the big shot with the middle sized Butterflies Thinlet, the butterfly die cuts removed and then it was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.  Earlier I had sprayed a piece of Very Vanilla with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, which was then cut with the same butterfly thinlet once the spray dried. Unfortunately the sparkle doesn't show in the photos, but really adds some nice shimmer IRL.

Gold became the accent color, including the button, baker's twine, sequins and embossed sentiment.  Although Mint Macaron is still not my favorite color, I do like how this card turned out.  ; - )

Thanks for stopping and taking a look today!  I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment. Also, be sure to use the link above to check out all the design team's beautiful inspiration, plus there's still time to play along!  Take care and have a great week!
