PPA 242, Butterfly grunge fun



Welcome.  Today starts 2 weeks of Color Challenge at the Pals Paper Arts.  If you have never tried doing a challenge, please do. I might seem intimidating, but honestly it's not. I does push you to create, maybe in a way you hadn't thought of before.

The Butterfly is made from Gold Soiree DSP.  This pack has not gotten the use it normally would have this year. With 2 operations and lots of recovery time needed, I haven't been able to do nearly as much to post on my blog as I usually do.  Anyway, our year (StampinUp) is winding down. In June we  will have a new catalog and this paper will be gone. So, think about getting it soon if you like it.
It shows up much better on my butterfly in person, and is a really pretty card.

And here you thought grunge couldn't be pretty.  . The Butterfly Basics and the matching Butterfly Thinlits are in the Occasions catalog and are bundle priced if you want both, so you would be saving 15 percent by purchasing them together.

Hello Lynn, your card is beautiful, I must get that butterfly die, it's just so gorgeous and in gold, like you did it even more so.
I'm new at participating in challenges, I'm a very new at blogging, just 4 short months and being of the Baby Boom generation, this techy stuff is a bit hard to handle but, I'm doing ok, with a lot of help from my friends.
This is my first PPA color challenge and it wont be my last.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful card.

Very pretty, Lynn! I love the collage you created and the topped with the gorgeous butterfly. It so reminds me that Spring is on the way! Glad you joined us the PPA this week.

FABULOUS! I loved the paper choice for the butterfly and I totally agree with you, I think it does get over looked. You sure do know how to make grunge look amazing! Thanks for playing!
