The Paper Players 426

This week is sketch week at The Paper Players and, as always, it's a beauty.

Straight away, the circular element put me in mind of the Dear Doily bundle with its magnificent circular stamps and die cuts. 

Once I'd gold embossed the large doily and added the Soft Sea Foam die cut doily, it seemed I'd created a perfect playground for some butterflies from Butterfly Gala.

The butterflies are coloured with Stampin' Write markers and the rhinestones coloured with a Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend.

Update: Delighted to be A Cut Above at The Paper Players this week.

  1. So happy you had a go at this Jan - I just knew you would use those doilies to create something wonderful with this week’s sketch! I love the combination of the soft green and pink with the sparkly gold and I adore the layering of your focal point - such a delicate and pretty card. Wonderful to see you in the PP gallery this week!
