Clean and Simple Butterflies

I'm trying something different with this card!!  I'm not really a 'purple' person, so my personal challenge for this card was using Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant!!

and this card is also part of these two challenges!!  Just click on both of the graphics to go to the blogs and see some totally gorgeous projects.... and you will be inspired!!!

I've used one of my clear stamping blocks for the background panel (thank you Robyn for the great idea!)  When I sprayed with my spritzer I discovered I used one with some shimmer mist!!  And oh, isn't it pretty!!


  1. That shimmer is a happy surprise! Julia, you should use purple more often; this is a gorgeous card. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week. :)

  2. This is a gorgeous CAS card Julia - love the texture you added in by stamping with the block and the shimmer is a lovely addition. Thanks for joining us this week at Just Add Ink.

  3. Beautiful CAS stamped card - so nice to see stand alone stamping. Chantell JAI

  4. Your background shimmer is fabulous and add such a fabulous eye catching look of texture to your beautiful single layer card! These colours are beautiful together too!! Love it! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  5. Wow! The background provides a beautiful backdrop for your butterflies.

  6. Perfectly Purple! Great job challenging yourself to use a new color combo!
    Thanks so much for linking up with TGIFC this week!
