Make It Monday #291 with Ashley Emboss Resist Shadow Sentiments

A card for this week's MIM 

I used PTI's Beautiful Butterflies and Graceful Greetings Sentiment  and did the same for the butterfly as well as the sentiment.  I almost threw this in the trash because I wasn't happy with the 2 colors I used,   These were the DOX inks so I sprayed it and was able to get a salvageable background.
The stripes were MFT BG Diagonal Stripes that I stamped with CP black ink and got a perfect impression with one inking.  Love those inks.

Can't believe you almost threw this out Lin...I love your background and the colors you used! And what a perfect idea to shadow emboss the butterfly it! I really like the black & white stripes on the sides too. Lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

Well, I like these two colors together and that you used the technique on the butterfly and the sentiment! Great idea!!

Such a pretty card- I bought a stripy background stamp and have forgotten to use it . seeing how you've used it will inspire me to ink it up!
