PTI 9th Anniversary - Day 1: DT Favorites

Hello friends.  Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 9th Anniversary, and they are starting out the celebrations with the Design Teams favorite color combinations.  The color combo's are all beautiful, but I was especially drawn to Melissa Phillips color choices: Autumn Rose, Lavender Moon, Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise, & Spring Moss.  And since I hadn't had a chance to use the Mini Butterfly Cover Plate die yet, I combined the two and came up with two cards:




My first card is pretty simple - just inking up the butterflies in Melissa's color combo and then reattaching them by their centers and adding the sentiment.  I did use Wink of Stella on all the butterflies, so IRL this simple card really shimmers!  My 2nd card I used watercolor cs and "smooshed" all the colors except the Spring Moss, and then die cut with the cover plate.  After reattaching the butterflies in the center again, I added another layer of DSP vellum butterflies (hard to see in the photos, but the vellum had little white swirls on it) over the first ones.  My sentiment I embossed on a strip of Spring Moss cs and then added a couple black enamel dots.  I used a  card base of Autumn Rose that you can see peeking through behind the butterflies for a bit more intense color.

Make sure you check out all the Anniversary fun going on over at Nichole's blog for the next 10 days right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
