Butterfly Garden and Magenta ATC Swap


I'm playing along with Make It Monday for the first time (now that I own some Papertrey Ink stamps - thanks, Maria!).  The theme is watercolour splats - how could I refuse?

I'm also playing along with CASology where the theme is Garden:


And with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Clean and Simple:


Butterfly by Clearly Besotted, all other stamps by Papertrey Ink

I took part in an ATC swap on the Magenta blog, and Mariette posted all the swaps on Wednesday.  Here are the ones I submitted - take a look on the Magenta blog to see what I got in return, and all the other gorgeous ATCs in the swap.

  1. I have been loving all your work lately - your innovative additions of colours on the backgrounds takes it a tiny little step away from CAS, but it still feels so fresh and pretty - with a little added sophistication!
