Butterfly Prints

I have done so well resisting the urge to buy the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set from our main catalogue, but when I saw the gorgeous creations everyone was making with the new Butterfly Prints stamp set in the Summer Mini catalogue, all restraint went out the window!  Butterfly Prints arrived a little over a week ago, and I finally had some time to play with it yesterday while Dylan was out with Yooralla.  

It's a very "girly girl" card, but I am happy with how it came out.  I used Versamark and Stampin' Pastels to colour the butterflies, and punched them out with our Butterfly punch!  So quick and easy!  I have so many creations bookmarked to case with this stamp set, and am hoping to sit down tonight once we have packed Dylan off to Very Special Kids (for TWO WHOLE NIGHTS of bliss!!!!!) and have more of a play.  I'm not picking Dylan up until Tuesday morning, so I will certainly be making the most of this time!

Thanks for looking,
