Love My Envelope Pattern Stamp

I cannot help myself, my two all time favourite items at the moment have to be the incredibly beautiful and useful Envelope Pattern stamp from Hero Arts and the oh, so lovely Victorian Velvet Distress Ink from Ranger!  So, I had to make another card:

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard and Layering paper, Neenah Solar White
Ink: Victorian Velvet & Shabby Shutters Distress Inks, Iris Chalk Ink from Hero Arts, Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: PTI Mat Stack 4 die

I die cut the centre panel and masked the butterfly from Antique Engravings in order to stamp the "Edged Fabric with Flowers" with Shabby Shutters.

The centre panel has a Hero Arts border stamped on either side and then a strip of lilac cardstock, stamped with the Envelope Pattern down the centre.  The butterfly panel is adhered using dimensional strips.  I stamped the sentiment on a seperate piece of paper, cut it out and adhered it.

I just like the springy, happy feel to this card which would be great to say hello to a friend!

Ok, I think this is the last post of the day!  Thank you for putting up with me today!
