Elegant Butterfly

While going through some patterned papers a friend gave me, I came across this wonder book of vellum with coordinating paper.  The vellum has it's own design as does the patterned paper.  When I saw the sketch from The Paper Players, I decided to use two of the designs.  It doesn't show well in the photo but the lavender die-cut butterfly has script on it while the vellum die-cut butterfly has polka dots.  It's really pretty in real life.

Stamp Sets:  Papillon Potpourri (antennae), Rose Wonder (sentiment); Inks:  Elegant Eggplant; Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant, Vellum Paper Sets (Fiskars); Other: Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, Pearl Basic Jewels

The sketch I used is from the The Paper Players Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
