What rich, deep colors in your background! Really makes that butterfly pop off the card!

Beth Norman said...

I'm really wanting those grunge circles now. You did an amazing job with that stamp. Love the background you created as well.

The colors you chose for this gorgeous card just glow with autumn blaze. How clever to use the grungy circles with your silhouette butterfly. I am loving playing with these sprays as well, and find that diluting in another bottle, diluting- adding white linen in another bottle, gives me 3 colorways for the same 'spray color'. This is just lovely. TFS
