STAMPlorations Spring Fling

Hello and happy Thursday crafty friends!
I'm excited to be part of the STAMPlorations Spring Fling Giveaway!
It's day 4 of the giveaway and today's prize is another fabulous one:

For my card, I first created a monoprint background using the
 ARTplorations Floral Mania stencil and a few colors of Distress inks.
While that dried, I stamped the larger butterfly from the Layered Butterflies
stamp set in the same inks used on the background. I fussy cut it, and added
some Wink of Stella to the spots on the wings and colored in the antennas
with a purple Gelly Roll pen. Once the background was dry, I stamped the sentiment
from the Sketched Simple Gift set. I doodled around some of the flowers with a 
black pen and added dots using the same purple pen. The butterfly
was popped up using foam squares.

I hope that you enjoyed my project. For all the details and
even more amazing inspiration, please head over to
