Vintage Verses for the Paper Players {PP132}

Hiya friends and stampers! It's another great week over at The Paper Players. The always-amazing-Ann has a fresh color challenge for us:
I absolutely love Summer Starfruit--it's such a bright and happy color.  The girls in my stamp clubs have some rather....ahem....."colorful" descriptors for this color but I love it!  Especially paired with Midnight Muse and that little pop of Primrose is the perfect accent color:
Patio Party DSP has all the challenge colors in it so I started with the paper as my inspiration building my card around the Summer Starfruit pattern.  A couple of Paper Doilies off-set from the sentiment panel were the perfect landing spot for a trio of butterflies.
Love the texture provided by the Needlepoint embossing folder!  I thought it was a great match to the stitching lines of the Primrose Petals satin ribbon too.
Since I used a sentiment from Vintage Verses (FREE during Sale-a-Bration) on the front, I kept it going with another one from the same set on the inside.  More butterflies on the inside, complete the look!  I have no idea who or what I will use this card for but I had fun pulling together these colors.  And I hope you do too when you make a card to join us in the challenge this week!  :-)  Be sure to stop by the rest of the Design Team and check out their fabulous work!  Don't forget, our challenge ends Friday, February 15th at Noon (PST).

Adorable card Nance, such pretty colors together. The "dressed" up butterflies are so cute and the perfect touch as are the doilies, BUT I LOVE the inside of the card!

I love everything about this card, Nance, inside and out! The DSP is so pretty, love the patterned butterflies, and I'm a total sucker for doilies.

Love this card and the offset doilies looks fab! The embossing is one of the many details you always include... the inside..Yummy. hugs

Beautiful card, Nance! I love the butterflies and the way you split the doily. I think the inside of the card is just as pretty as the outside -- so glad you shared it!

LeAnne said...

Oh so pretty! I love that unique little butterfly as well as the beautifully-stamped inside! Gorgeous! I wonder what those adjectives are your club girls use to describe Summer Starfruit? Hmmmm....

Margaret said...

I love how you used the colors and the DSP butterflies are so pretty!

I LOVE starfruit with other colors, but have to agree that on it's own, it's not so attractive!

Ann Schach said...

Beautiful, Nance! I love the doilies...awesome! And who can resist pearls and butterflies!

Dawn Tidd said...

This is so pretty. I love the offset doilies and all the butterflies. Vintage Verses fits both places perfectly!

Jaydee said...

I love starfruit, too... but can imagine the errr descriptors! Love the butterflies, the offset doily and the way you really allowed this fabulous sentiment to take center stage.
