Monochromatic Butterfly - SSC80 & PP205

I can't remember the last time I made a card that didn't have any white in it, but here it is. I used the sketch challenge from Sunday Stamps and the challenge of "Clean, Simple & Monochromatic" From The Paper Players for today's card. It's a bit hard to tell, but the butterfly is embossed in Pool Party, and the Candy Dots and lighter frame are all Pool Party as well.

Recipe (all Stampin' Up!)

Stamps: Swallowtail, Papillon Potpourri (inside)

Ink: Versamark, Island Indigo (inside)

Paper: Island Indigo, Pool Party card stock

Misc: Pool Party Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Pool Party Candy Dots
