Hurry spring! Isn't this a gorgeous stamp from Serendipity?
I inked up a small portion of the Zinnia image and colored it with Copics. The butterfly was stamped again and fussy cut. I've used silicone to pop the wings up. The fun "Spring" Stamp is from the Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter Set. Take a look at all those layers!! I am a BIG fan of the Perfect Layer Rulers and now they have the Perfect Layers Mini  and  Perfect Cutting Mat! These are awesome and so easy to use.





For the inside...layers, layers and more layers! One of my favorite measurements on the ruler is 1/16 inch for that nice fine border!  Easy peasy and what a difference it makes to your card! No more fussing with repositioning! 
Serendipity has sooo many wonderful sentiments in their line! I just love the script for Butterfly Kisses, beautiful!

Thanks for joining the hop and your next blog to visit is the very talented

  4. Your colors are so soft . The frame makes me feel like I'm peeking out a window into the garden with the butterfly as my guide. I love how much dimension you added with the fussy cut layer!
