Papillon Card

Yes, the Tim Holtz Papillon stamp set is definitely my favourite gifted to me by my hubby on my birthday. I'm so glad I added it to my wishlist.. I was not sure at first because these sets are so expensive... but I now have to say it is well worth it!

I used the large text stamp to create a background, using clear embossing ink and vintage photo distress ink. I added a picture I found on the net and altered it on my computer to create room to stamp a butterfly or moth (not sure ~smile~). I added a postage stamp frame, some flowers and metal corners and et voilà...

It is the first time that I enter something I made for a challenge... fingers crossed!
