I have to admit, when I first saw the colors in this MIF Design Challenge, I was stumped for ideas. I could see the Mango Melody, Lemon Lime Twist, and Pool Party together, but Rich Razzleberry had me scratching my head. I think the problem was, I was trying to work it into a holiday card, and it just wasn't clicking for me. Then I spotted the Butterfly Gala bundle sitting on my side table and inspiration struck - I could use preorder goodies from the Occasions catalog! To heck with the holidays!!!
I knew there was Lemon Lime Twist in the Gingham Gala DSP pack, and I could color the Silver Metallic Edge ribbon with a Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker. All I needed were some mango and raspberry butterflies to punch out and adhere!
The Whisper White background was stamped with (stamped off once) Pool Party butterflies to make a subtle background. After adding the gingham DSP and ribbon, a Pool Party mat was adhered to the back and the butterflies were added to the front. I think it looks nice and Spring-like on this cold snowy day!
Here are pics of the Butterfly Gala photopolymer stamp set, and the Butterfly Duet Punch, which are on page 35 of the upcoming Occasions catalog. NOTE: The catalogs will be mailed out around the middle of December, so if you want me to add you to my mailing list, let me know!
