Petal Potpourri with Butterflies Thinlits for the Paper Players

The Petal Potpourri Bundle was one of the first items on my very first Occasions order. As you know by now, I absolutely love stamp sets that coordinate with punches or framelits! Not only do your cards look great but it cuts your time substantially. What’s not to love about that? Oh, and there is ONE more reason – you SAVE 15%! Love that part the most!

Petal Potpourri, Thoughts & Prayers, Butterfly Framelits

The design team at the Paper Players came up with a wonderful sketch challenge for you to enjoy. I really got my creative juices going and before I knew it, I had made two cards. The first one I made followed the sketch right side up and the second one is the sketch flipped upside down. My thought process was to use most of the same products and see how just changing a few colors here and there can change the look. And, make sure you see all of the wonderful products from Sale-A-Bration in both of these cards: Best Year Ever DSP and Accessory Pack (beautiful ribbon AND buttons). These products are FREE for you when you place a $50 order. Please read below for all of the details!
