Mango Blueberry Butterfly ~ CCMC517, WWYS175, TSOT371


Hello stampers!  We've got a brand spankin' new color challenge for you to play along with over at Create with Connie and Mary this week!  Our three colors are new ones from the color revamp in the 2018-19 catalog and they are Blueberry Bushel, Gray Granite, and Mango Melody.  
I must say that when I saw Mango Melody in the catalog I didn't think I'd like it and couldn't see myself using it much at all, but it has grown on me!  I especially like it watercolored like on my butterfly.  It provides some nice, intense color.  
By contrast I knew I'd like Blueberry Bushel right off the bat and that opinion stuck!  
So, for my design team card this week I decided to use What Will You Stamp's #175 Beautiful Day challenge and also the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I went with a double diagonal fun fold to mimic the sketch.  It's such a fun way to open a card and kind of a surprise for the recipient!  
I'm so pleased with the way this one turned out!


Try Stampin' on Tuesday also had an optional element of texture and I think I've got plenty of that going on here!  One texture I used is the Tufted dynamic embossing folder.  This was another item out of the new catalog that I knew I would love and use a lot.  I think it's so pretty!




here's a list of my supplies.....
stamps: Beautiful Day
Ink: Blueberry Bushel, Mango Melody, Stazon Black
Paper: Gray Granite, Blueberry Bushel, Mango Melody, Whisper White, Watercolor
Accessories: Lovely Floral and Tufted dynamic embossing folders, Pearlized Doilies, Polka dot tulle ribbon
