Butterfly Birthday for PPA 256

Yesterday was my lovely sister-in-law's birthday.  Happy Birthday, Sarah!  What a perfect time to try out my new Watercolor Wings stamp set.  I am having so much fun experimenting with different colors on these three-way stamps.  Here's the set:

And here is this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch that inspired my design:

I chose my colors from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack.  Love the watermelon, black, and vanilla together.  I used my new Banner Triple punch on the flags.  Even though my paper strips are only 3/4" wide, I was able to center them between the little marks on the punch for perfect placement.  

I have a couple of close-up shots for you, plus the envelope -- made the the Envelope Punch Board and new In Color Envelope Paper. This butterfly was stamped with Craft Whisper White and Memento Tuxedo Black....

 Rhinestones for extra sparkle
