Penny Black Sprinkles and Smiles

Good Morning!

Over at Global Design Project, a new to me's case the designer:

I don't usually do lots of layers and textures, but I gave it a go! I used the butterfly as the focal point of my card, as Michelle did. Then I went off on my own.

I really like monochromatic cards....I used just Coastal Cabana with white, both favorite colors of mine. I LOVE white, and you will see it on almost every card I make. I'm not sure why...guess I just like the crisp clean feel it adds to a card!

The sentiment is from Penny Black called Sprinkles and Smiles. You can find the " sparkle "on my card in two places, the sequins and Wink on the butterfly. I forgot to take a close up of it so you can see it better, but it's there!

I'm also entering this at:
