Back in Time... Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden

 

Do you remember the excitement this collection stirred? It seemed like everyone was making cards and layouts with it. I know from the first moment I laid eyes on it, I fell in love. I have been hoarding some partial sheets and bits of these gorgeous papers not wanting to let go, but... the time has come. After making this card, I have just a few scraps left... sob. That's the life of a paper artist... you have to let go!


The flowers are Petaloo Botanica in pistachio. The fern was cut with Alterations Holiday Greens Thinlits and the doily is their Distress Doily die.


The pearl and flower flourish is an oldie by Prima.


My main image die cut stack was cut with Die-namics Layered Label die. I sponged on Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.


The seam binding ribbon was a gift.


I'm not real happy with letting go of these papers, and I haven't seen anything new released that I like as well, but I can't keep everything in a box. And hopefully this card will bring a smile to someone's face and be a blessing.

Thank you for stopping by!
Linda

I loved them just as much as you but used thes epapers immediately. I guess it's a sort of classic style that suits a lot of people. It really is a jawdropper.
My style in cardmaking has changed but I have a place in my heart for cards like this. You added lovely details and embellishments. Wow!
