a pop of color-the paper plunge#13

hi tracey, momma, friends old and new!

thanks for taking time out of your very busy life to stop by and check out my blog!  it means the world to me!  This week at the paper plunge we are looking to use white with a pop of color.  just like on a wonderful snowy is all white outside, when all of a sudden, a cardinal flies by and gives you a little glimpse of color!

here is what i decided to create:

although i am totally in the christmas spirit, right away i thought of beautiful blue butterflies!  i love the way they just pop off the white page!

stamps:  papillon potpourri 
ink:  pacific point, stazon black
cardstock:  white, pacific point
extras:  white satin ribbon, beautiful baroque ef, sponge dauber

again, thank you for taking the time to visit!  i once read, "time is precious...waste it wisely"!  do something this weekend that brings you joy!

peace be with you-


  1. Leslie, my gosh I cannot believe there are no comments on this card. I have been really focusing on butterflies as of late. could it be the forecast of 19-25 inches of snow this week? At any rate, these butterflies just jump off the card. Your choice of color is perfect. Did you only use Pacific Point with the StazOn for them? It seems there is more....

    1. thank you, jane! yes! it is just pacific point! i daubered the whole butterfly and then added more ink on the edges! i just LOVE the look...and thank you for loving it, too!

  2. Hi Leslie, I was looking for a quick card to make for a friend who will be here in about an hour. I stumbled upon you web page and fell in love with this card. I just love how the butterflies popped out at me. It is so stunning I just had to case your card, but with a different twist. Thanks so much for sharing. I have now signed up to follow you by email.

    1. have no idea how your comment love has affected me! i have been awful about keeping up with my blog...but because of you, i've reread and revisited every post i've created and decided i needed to begin again. thank you so much for the 'nudge'. i hope you come back time and again! i'm challenging myself to get back in the game this weekend! stay tuned! thank you so much for stopping by!
