#87 Butterflies + V is for Vertical and /or the colour Damson.
So a vertical image or an added vertical element needs to be on your project.
The colour Damson sometimes called Damson plum is the dark-blue or purple fruit of a plum so there will be variations in colour.
Here is my inspiration for you . On this first card I have used a Memory Box die cut called Tessatina Border Style No 98302 for my Vertical element. I didn't have any plain cardstock the correct shades so I used white cardstock and then coloured the die cut using my Marvy LePlume II plum coloured pen instead. The background digi paper is from Crafters Companion Club Inpsire April 2016 and has shades of both plum and damson in the pattern. The butterfly has been die cut from felt using the Memory Box
Cascadia Butterfly Trio set. The gem came from my stash. The sentiment is a Tonic Studios Miniature Moments die Happy Anniversary. Again I cut in white and coloured with my Plum coloured pen.
For my second card I have used a plain white card blank which I have adhered a pale green sheet of cardstock to the front. The paper ,( surprise, surprise) is a freebie from Making Cards Magazine June 2016 called June flowers. Again the flowers are in shades of both plum and damson. I have distressed the edges before attaching over the green card. The image (which is my Vertical Element) is by Kaisercraft called 'Flutter' and I used Dew Drops Versa Magic 'Perfect Plumeria' chalk ink for stamping onto white cardstock. Ribbon, gem and the the paper flower were from my stash. The Birthday wishes stamp was a freebie from a magazine at sometime but I have no makers name for it.
Hope to see you over at the challenge which runs for two weeks.
