Bold Daisies

This week's inspiration challenge over on Split Coast was a fun web site called Two Lumps of Sugar. I was inspired by these blue butterfly plates .
I got to use my brandy new Martha Stewart butterfly punch that I bought with my 40% off coupon at Michaels (whoo hoo!!) and also a brandy new stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps called Bold Florals - Daisies. Here's my card inspired by the dishes.

I distressed the edges of my image panel for the Split Coast Ways to Use it Challenge from Thursday. I colored the edges of the butterflies with a Copic to mimic those on the dishes.

I love how this stamp looks just inked without coloring and I think the butterflies added a lovely dimension to the simple stamping!

I think this card would work for a birthday, sympathy, thank you or just to say hi - don't you?!
