Have You ever Seen a Purple Butterfly?


Hello!  I used a different style for me on this card made for the challenge at Joan's Touch-to use something from nature, purple and white, distressed edges, and a product from Joan's Garden.
I used a mask made by cutting out a circle with a Nesties circle die.  Laying the mask on white cardstock I stamped branches with blossoms using Flourishes Cherry Blossoms  with Memento Sweet Plum ink.  I then sponged edges of circle with Distress Ink China Blue.  I cut a butterfly from purple cardstock and white liner with Cheery Lynn small #2 Butterfly and Angel Wing dies. Added some doodling to the wings.  Assembled the card with White card base, Purple mat, Purple Grosgrain ribbon and bow, and the image with butterfly.  I distressed the edges of the top layer with distress tool.   Cheery Lynn Dies and Memento inks are sold at Joan's Gardens.  I will add a sentiment when I use card.

I have seen a purple butterfly with other colors mixed into it. I bet you could find a purple and white live one if you googled. LOL I like it and how you did your backdrop is awesome!
