Freshly Made Sketches #39

The gals over at Freshly Made Sketches have a favorite standby sketch of mine for this week's challenge.  It works really well with Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I embossed the butterfly using Rose Red card stock and white embossing powder.  There's a second butterfly layered underneath.  The greeting is also embossed.

The Papillon Potpourri set offers butterflies in a number of different styles...modern (like this one), floral and realistic.  It's a great set to pair with the Floral District patterned paper.  If you click on the link to see the Floral District DSP, be sure to click on "More Images" beneath the picture.  You'll see larger swatches of each pattern.
