Butterfly Flourish Card

The card I'm sharing in this post was inspired by this card on the Clearly Besotted blog. I really liked the colors in the card and well, I love me some butterflies, so that was a big draw as well. Here's my version.

Recently I picked up a stamp set by Inkadinkado called Flower Flourishes and I've been wanting to ink it up. This was a perfect opportunity to do so. The stamps are cling mounted and the main image needs a pretty big block. Thankfully I had one. It was fun stamping this background. I got the little heart stamp from Close To My Heart's Whoo's Your Valentine stamp set. I used CTMH's Ocean and Seafoam ink. The butterflies are also from CTMH. Butterfly Wings is the stamp set name. I don't think it's available anymore. For just a bit more interest, I decided to add some silver gems. 

A simple but striking card, I think. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day!
