Love as delicate as a butterfly's wings. . .

I have new stamps from Close To My Heart that are jumping up and down, screaming to be used! I love this new stamp. It's perfect for the Valentines I'm making. I especially love the hearts on the wings of the butterfly. It was a combination of image and sentiment in one clear acrylic stamp. They call it Quick Cards-Butterfly and only charged $6.95. They have several Quick-Cards stamps in the new Idea Book that was just released.  I used the Deconstructed Sketch #36 for this card. I also made this for the Valentine challenge this week at Stamps R Us Challenge Blog.

I scored the image rectangle 1/8" from the edges and mounted it on white textured CS with pop dots. I inked the image with the Cotton Candy ink and used the Rock and Roll technique to ink the edges and sentiment portion with the darker Cranberry ink.

Paper - K and Company - patterned paper; CTMH - White Daisy CS
Stamp - CTMH "Quick Cards-Butterfly
