Card Patterns 87 ~ Merci

I saw the Card Patterns 87 challenge today and managed to squeeze in just a bit of stamping (amongst other things going on here today, lol!)  

   I used the Rose Blossom Frame Cling Art Stamp (since Layers of Color Art Stamps is now a Spellbinders Preferred Stamp Company this stamp works perfectly with Nestabilities Labels 16).  I paired the frame with the beautiful Embroidered Butterfly Cling Art Stamp and the sentiment is from the clear art stamp Merci Bouquet.  The background was created by sponging Memento Cantaloupe and Fired Brick Distress ink, and stamping the text from Nina's set Vintage Backgrounds in Rich Cocoa.

Here is a closer picture of the butterfly:


The picture doesn't show it as well, but I outlined parts of the butterfly with a Stardust pen, it really sparkles beautifully!

And how about adding some more pics? No offence, text is really great. Just according to the scientists people acquire info much more effective if they see certain useful pictures.
