Butterfly Garden for the Pals!

PPA 293 2

Oh my gosh, the colors in this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge are so sweet!  I love them ~ beautiful pastels!  I really enjoyed the challenge this week.  Here is the color palette we worked with:


Grateful Bunch is my current favorite stamp set.  It’s just so versatile.  These flowers are darling and the coordinating punch … love, love, love!!  But I think my favorite stamp is the little butterfly.  The stamp is very detailed.  This is one of those stamps that reminds me why I love Stampin’ Up!  It’s incredibly beautiful!

The sentiment here is Another Thank You.  It has lots of great “thank you’s” in different sizes and fonts.  A great stamp set.

    I love your strong (though subtle) color palette, Peggy… seems a little different from your regular style. Love how you used the dots throughout your project. And the lace shows beautifully against the So Saffron panel.
