For this last layout I was challenged by Rayette HERE to create a white layout with only the use of one additional color (sparingly). This was definitely scary as I'm all about mixing things up with bright colors and never just one, but I gave it my best shot. I'm guessing I used a bit more of my one color than I probably should have, but I realized this was also one of my first tries at a monochromatic layout so it was all around a good and difficult exercise for me.
For my background I used 9 different scalloped border punches from every brand on the market. I've always wanted to do this so I was excited to find the perfect pictures of my daughter in her white scalloped dress when we went to see the cherry blossoms last year.
Patterned papers are by Jillibean Soup. Layered butterfly diecuts are a combination of Sizzix (Large), Papertrey Ink (Medium) and Martha Stewart Punch (Small). After using the silk flower, regular cardstock butterflies looked too stark and unbalanced so after fidgeting with a dozen different combinations I settled on adding vellum to the top to give them the same soft look.
Thanks for stopping by and THANK YOU Craft Warehouse for such a fun event! I never would have completed 3 layouts and a card this weekend without your inspiration and motivation! :)
