Papaya Sympathy...


I combined a couple of challenges and some new goodies the other day...

I used the Papaya Collage set from the new catalogue (coming on October 1st!!) as well some Crumb Cake tulle ribbon that I was convinced I didn't need, but after playing with some at a recent demo day I quite like it!

The main panel is Naturals Ivory, stamped with the leaves from Papaya Collage using Crumb Cake ink and sponged around the edges. I embossed the oval frame then layered the sentiment (from Hopeful Thoughts) over the top - this was stamped with Midnight Muse and punched out with the extra large oval punch. The butterflies were stamped with Midnight Muse, coloured with a blender pen and I added some pearls to their centres. The flower was created using the Blossom Party die and some Beau Chateau fabric, with a Brushed Bronze button in the centre secured with some linen thread. I layered this on a bow tied with Crumb Cake scalloped tulle and added a strip of lace trim to finish.

Thanks for stoppng by!
