PTI Butterflies & Always Playing with Paper

Paper Trey Ink is celebrating their 9th Anniversary -- Their's is one of the first stamp companies I fell in love with.  
For their first challenge with the new release we were asked to pick a color palette to use on our card.  

It was so hard to choose, but one I fell in love with is Maile Belles' card and colors.  

I also used the sketch from Always Playing with Paper Challenge

And of course the colors from Maile's palette.  

All the stamps (3 different butterfly sets) and paper are from PTI.  I stamped the butterflies first with white pigment ink, then stamped over them with dye inks.  There was a bit of masking to get the desired effect.  I put some Wink of Stella over the butterflies (which is very pretty IRL), and some sequins and done.  

I had another snow day today (one on Friday too) so it was awesome having some extra craft time.  And I even baked cookies today!  Woo Hoo!

Now it is off to shovel a bit of snow.  I hope you are having a good day.  Thank you for looking and your comments.
