Play Date Cafe Challenge #38


Isn't this a pretty picture?  I love lupines, probably because I cannot for the life of me get them to grow in my garden.   I remember seeing a whole field of them growing wild in Maine - gorgeous!   Here is my take on the challenge at the Play Date Cafe:


I stamped this beautiful Garden Bouquet using purple and lime markers, then paper-pieced the big butterfly, adding lilac pearls to the edge, and punched the smaller ones. 

Supplies: white and purple cardstock, green dotted paper for butterflies, Hero Arts stamps CG172 Garden Bouquet, CG130 Butterflies, CL371 Essential Messages, Marvy markers, Martha Stewart butterfly punch

  1. Love your pretty card Lin, a great take on the challenge. Lupins wont grow in my garden either. We have very poor soil thats why most of my flowers are in pots!
