Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop - Flourish in Color Combo

Welcome BACK to the 2015-2016 Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
I am so blessed that I get to create and inspire with these amazing Stampin' UP products and share with you all here for another wonderful year! Remember that every other Thursday, all 20 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Please keep hoppin' thru them do not want to miss anyone of these amazing ladies!

This week is an "open to create" week but to stay within the parameters of goodies from our Artisan box. I chose to use the Flourish Thinlits and Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set mixed with a soft color combo mixed with a little metallic copper. I challenged myself to use one of the new In-Colors called Sweet Sugarplum partly because I am not a "purple" fan.

I stamped off the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set image with Sweet Sugarplum Ink first to create the background. I also stamped just the word YOU over and over on the butterflies. The Copper Embossing Powder is hard to photo but it is so pretty in person. 
Sticking with the butterflies paired with this Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and Flourish Thinlits, I adore this card!  I even used the same dotted Copper pattern from Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape to make one of the leaves. Just line up a couple of strips on Whisper White cardstock and run thru the Big Shot with the thinlit. That is the Copper Metallic Thread on there too!
Here you can see the washi tape trick was used again but with the Butterflies Thinlits. And that is not linen thread but a piece of the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon for a little more textured twine.
So my goal when I started this project was to fall in love with Sweet mixing it with the right colors, I would say...pure SUCCESS!

Thanks for stopping by here and if you leave a comment then thanks for truly making my day!
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

Now on to one of my dearest friends.....Connie Collins! She is one of a kind!
