Butterfly Basics

I had great fun with the Butterfly Basics stamp set and some butterfly dies and other bits n bobs!  I made several cards, some just in a different colour scheme, others with slightly different elements (ribbon, die cuts, jewels, pearls...)  but I love this one as the colours are just so pretty/vintage/ice-creamy!

Yet again I have used one of my favourite pinks - Melon Mambo - only downside of that one (and Blackberry Bliss) is that the inks do make a mess of your fingers! And they also stain your photopolymer stamps, but as long as you clean them properly this does not affect the colours you stamp next.
