Soft and Subtle Sympathy


Sooo...one of the most beautiful stamp sets in this catalogue is Pappillon Potpourri.  It wasn't the first stamp set I bought...sadly, I can't buy everything at once!!  ha ha ha...but i did finally get that and the matching punch (elegant butterfly).  wow!  that stamp set is soo beautiful, much more beautiful in real life, and the punch makes it soo nice to use! So...I was inspired by the colour combination over at Dynamic Duos today...phew you all know if you've been following that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pool Party.  It is definitely my favorite colour.  The best thing about it is that it coordinates with soooo many of the other Stampin' Up Colours!  Anyways, the colour combo is Pool Party and Soft Suede.
I have played along a few times at this challenge blog, but this is definately one of the best colour combos!!  I also decided to play along with Stampin' Up! Only Challenges also.  This site is really good as not only does it have fun challenges, it is all Stampin' Up Product, so it's really good as a demo to get some inspiration from!!  To see all the different ideas and possibilities for all the stamp sets and products is really amazing!  SUO Challenges is a theme challenge this week, Animals!!  so throw in the little butterflies from Pappillon Potpourri and you've got the perfect mix!  Anyways, here is my card!
