Delicate Happy Day To You...

Thursday, April 26, 2012


I just love the card that Vicky Hayes created here. The flowers stamped together to form a backing panel of in delicate yellows, corals, reds and browns is so pretty.  I also love the transparent butterfly.
The current Paper Players Sketch gave me the perfect opportunity to apply some of my favourite things from Vicky's card into one of my own.

For this design I've used a second stamping technique to get a collection of overlapping flowers in a backdrop of soft shades of Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake and So Saffron.  My butterfly comes from the Butterfly Prints Stamp Set and is stamped on Stampin' Up! Window Sheets.  The sentiment is a favourite from the Friendly Phrases Set.
