Stampin Up, Pals Paper Arts Challenge #294

This week is a sketch challenge hosted by Dawn Tidd.  I usually do not use a great deal of DSP, (Designer Series Paper).  I find often that people rely on it too much.  I truly enjoy coming up with my own design.  So, this is a departure for me and I love it, these two pieces worked so well together.

The DSP is English Garden and it mimics a stamp and die set we have as well, so the possibilities are endless.  Often times SU will take some color and when they used them for DSP they will lighten them up as is the case here.  The pink in this is Melon Mambo and that is the color of my ribbon.

For the center I used two ovals from the Oval framelits and my butterfly is from Butterfly Basics stamp set, die cut using the Butterfly thinlits.  I then sponged color (Blushing Bride) on the edges so I didn't have that white border.

I hope you enjoyed and gained a bit of inspiration here today. Thanks for stopping by.  Here is the sketch:

Come on over and play with us.

I love your use of the DSP, Lynn! Those prints suit one another so well and do a great job of showcasing the pretty butterfly. Thanks so much for sharing at the PPA this week and for using my sketch!
