Beauty Abounds at #GDP173

What do you do when you have a day off work and it turns out to be an absolute scorcher of a day... park yourself under an air conditioning duct and a find a card challenge!  That's what I did this morning, and I couldn't pass up the colour challenge on offer the Global Design Project - after all pastels are my "go to" colours (and pink of course!)


I've been itching to try out the Bokeh dots in the Beauty abounds stamp set, so I took this colour palette and tried them out, and I love the result!

I wasn't in the mood for fussy cutting, so instead of stamping butterflies I used the beautiful Butterfly Elements that I earned as a Sale-a-Bration FREEBIE. There is an amazing selection of butterflies, flowers and leaves - 84 pressed wood elements in total in the pack.

I also couldn't resist using the Rectangle Stitched framelits, I am soooo loving having these rectangles to create layers and frames, and just had to add a little bling too - Iridescent sequins are great to have on hand, and go a long way!

Ink: Petal Pink, So Saffron, Soft Sea Foam
Cardstock: Whisper White, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam
Embellishments: Iridescent Sequin Assortment, Butterfly Elements (FREE with qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration)
