Purple Butterfly


Hi, I'm getting my fix of purple today!

I was inspired to make this card by a few challenges. Freshly Made Sketches has this sketch.


I used a circle instead of a square as it framed my butterfly better.

The inspiration for the colours came from Inkspirational. I hope mine are close enough.


I'm also entering the Playing Favourites challenge at A Blog Named Hero


One of my favourite Hero Arts stamps is this Antique Engravings one. I'm leaving it without a sentiment for now to have in my stash.

Other materials use: Entangled embossing folder; Prismacolor pencils; Spellbinder circle & scallop dies; Martha Stewart frond punch; Stickles.
