It's an obsession really.....this Afternoon Tea DP from Stampin' Up AND the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch....seriously! This blue striped pattern with the guava flowers is probably my favorite out of the whole pack of DP and I finally made a card with it. I think the soft blue and white stripes go really well with Summer by the Sea, which I haven't pulled out in a LONG time. The butterflies are just so much fun because the wings bend up so nicely. Just use a glue dot in the center and away you go.
The sketch is from this month's Fan Club Sketch. I cut a piece of 8" x 8" Guava CS and folded it in half to get a 4" x 8" measurement. The image was watercolored with reinkers (that I totally forgot I had..oh my!).
Oh, and I used the reverse side of the blue striped Afternoon Tea DP for the butterflies, so if you look under the wings, you can also see the blue floral stripes. Matchy matchy!
