Make It Monday #176 with Laura Bassen - Backgrounds with embossing paste.

My card for MIM
Made a stencil with 2 Quatrefoil die cuts.
PTI's Life is Beautiful in Berry Sorbet and Vellum.
Wonderful Words Thank you
PTI's Quatrefoil with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste in Berry Sorbet, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold.
I have a house full today, my three granddaughters and son, so this was made in stages
My 8 year old granddaughter helped me mix the colors for the paste.  She worked on one while I did the other   She is the only one who seems to want to make cards and she is the youngest.  The other two just want to color images or play with all the gadgets.  So while we were letting it dry we all sat down and played Yatzee.  It is going to be 95 today, too hot to go outside.

So here is the  Birthday Card she made with Garden Grace and Butterfly Dreams in Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal.

Beautiful card and the pearl gives it such a lovely shine!

Beautiful card! And yes, we must think alike ;), especially since my first choice was the quatrefoil cover plate, but then changed my mind and used the diagonal, instead! Love your ombré tones!

Fun! I ended up doing a very similar background (and the colours too) to you. Love the butterfly on here!
