Recipe Challenge 33

Sketches {by tamara} Recipe Challenge:
Die Cut

I broke into a long neglected stamp set for this one. It's a Saleabration set from last year that I loved, had to have, and then barely used :) Anyone else have some of those??? I paper pierced the butterfly in a green floral print (it's sort of hard to see in the pic).
The background was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink using my Bella Toile stamp. I really love this stamp and don't use it near as much as I should. I tore the floral paper for a bit of interest but it isn't real noticeable in the picture either. Hum, maybe this card is just better in real!

Make sure you head over to the Sketches blog and check out the other design team members cards!!

Very pretty--I love that it is not pink or red---I think I am od'ing on Valentines already!!! I love pink & red, actually, but I need them in small doses, I think! I have really enjoyed perusing your blog lately so I have left you a little award-feel free to pass it along if you have time!
