Butterflies

For today's card that I am entering into the Hero Arts Flickr group challenge, I decided to make a Thank You card instead of a Christmas card. In order for this card to qualify, I used the the Merry Christmas sketch that is pictured here. I distressed the background paper with Age Mahogany distress ink (by Ranger) and then stamped the butterflies with the same ink. I wasn't planning on doing a monochromatic card, it just turned out that way. The butterflies are from Hero Arts/Sizzix stamp set Playful Flowers and Butterflies 657778. The frames are from The Frames with Sprigs set 657775. The sentiment comes from Mix and Match CL266. This was a fun card to make and I really like the idea of dies matching the stamps. Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Hope that everyone has a great weekend.

This is lovely! Your stamped butterflies make an elegant background paper. I never would have thought to do that. Bravo.
