Introducing Mint Macaron

 Mint Macaron--not macaroon, macaron! (You can click the words to see the difference.)

It's a minty green--fresh and spring-like, also great as a neutral background! Those of you still missing Sage Shadow will be thrilled with the introduction of Mint Macaron. You must promise to pronounce it correctly, though. {wink}

I used my fallback, the beautiful Butterflies Thinlits, to make this delicate card. The sentiment is from one of my favorite sets in the catalog--Sprinkles of Life! It's the Ronald McDonald House set this year, so for every set I sell, Stampin Up will donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities! Win, win, non? (See how I stuck a little more French in there, so the macaron wouldn't feel lonely?) There is a coordinating punch, but we'll get to that later. Today we celebrate Mint Macaron!

The Designer Series Paper you see on the layered butterfly is from the new Envelope Paper: In Color 2015 set. It's a fun, thinner DSP that makes fabulous envelopes, as well as gorgeous butterflies.
