This week’s Paper Players color challenge determined the colors: Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, and Calypso Coral.

My layout and butterfly idea were from the Global Design project. 


I started with a Thick Whisper White card base, layered with Daffodil Delight cardstock, and Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper in Balmy Blue. The two layers were cut with Rectangle Stitched dies, so I didn’t even have to measure.

The design behind the butterfly was cut with a die from the Beautiful Layers die set. Isn’t it great? It’s cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock, and raised in the middle on dimensionals.


The Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight, butterfly, was in the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, cut with the Butterfly Duet Punch. The butterfly is mostly free, simply attached with a tiny strip of dimensionals.


The sentiment, “Thinking of you,” is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, which I stamped in Black ink on the Balmy Blue DSP. Happily, I used the Stamparatus, because it took more than one stamping to make the words dark enough.
