Memory Box Bellina Butterfly Ribbon



Hi everyone!

Today it's my turn to host at The Paper Players and I have a simple sketch for you:



I was playing around with my oxide inks and and made a bunch of backgrounds to keep on hand for quick cards.

I chose this one with only 2 colors, and added a simple die from Memory box called the Bellina Butterfly Ribbon. The sentiment "enjoy" is from Simon Says.




I added a few pearls and some sequins.

I hope you will join us!

That is one glorious die! The sense of movement is wonderful and it remains elegant. As you say, it's really all that's needed against an interesting background. Just lovely!
