Simplicity




This is my 2nd entry made for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #33, to use raspberry, aqua, kraft, and white (you can see them on the post below this one).  I feel like I'm cheating, using this beautiful Vinnie Pearce digital paper and butterflies, but the colors were too perfect to pass up!  I simply reduced them and printed them out onto a textured white cardstock, to make it look more painterly.  Then I stamped the sentiment, cut out and popped the butterflies, and added some pearls and gems.
