Pure Prairie Spirit ~ Power Poppy
Hello friends!!  It is day two of our Power Poppy sneak peaks, and for this day we're focusing on a new set called Pure Prairie Spirit.  It features the large Digital bouquet from Pure Prairie Bouquet, along with some beautiful butterflies and of course, the perfect sentiments!  

I chose to focus on one of the butterflies and two of the sentiments for my card today.  Now, I realize Monarchs are traditionally orange and black, but I took creative license here to match the papers I wanted to use as my backgrounds.  I wanted to work with vellum and a sweet little tag to feature some sentiments (which I often leave off of the outside of my cards so they are more versatile...I add the sentiments to the inside later when I know the occasion.)  This is what I came up with.  The butterfly is colored twice and the front wing is popped up a bit because if you've followed my blog, you know I love dimension.

I also added a bit of sparkle to the butterfly with a Clear Wink of Stella pen for a hint of sparkle.  If you click on the photo, the sparkle is more obvious.

That's it for my project today.  Check out these gals' blogs for some more incredible inspiration!!

Your creative license worked perfectly with the butterflies! The vellum with the tag and then the sentiments makes for a stunning visual!
