nbus goes us - take 2

More fun with PTI Phrase Play #11 die. First up, inspired by a sketch and code word.

Got my butterflies from STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies, stamped in Neon Yellow pigment ink.


And the rest of the sketch... love how the frame from the sketch is built into this die cut! I used white textured CS for the die cut to help it stand out from the cardbase a bit. Recognize the sketch?


Going to CASe This Sketch #126 where the incredibly talented Sonja K. is guest designing.




How about a wedding card? Same frame, die cut from recycled gold packaging, this time as a shaker housing some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and backed with a panel watercolored with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.


In a nod to the sketch I added some vellum roses and watercolored leaves die cut with Winnie and Walter Maggies Roses.

I'm hooking up at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where it's about Love of Plants


And at Sparkle and Shine sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh


Thanks for looking. More tomorrow!

Such a beautiful card series with this one die, Maria! I love all of the cards you've made with it. But this one is my absolute favorite. I cannot stop looking at all those soft and shiny colors.
