Because I Care

As soon as I saw the Current Sketch/Theme Challenge 
over at STAMPlorations
I knew what stamp set I wanted to ink up choosing to go with
both Sketch and Theme.
It is the new release -STAMPlorations Trendy Spring Blooms
and as a Premium Stamp Club member I got the
Matching CUTplorations Dies for free. Bonus!
There is a little bit going on with this card 
starting with my SU card base.
The background is stamped with the flowers
and leaves from the above Stamp Set
 and I off set the top layer as I like the uneven effect.
For my featured butterfly from 
 I cut the peek a boo die from MFT 
to then tuck it in behind my popped flowers.
After I inked it up I then heated it with clear embossing powder.
Inks were Memento Potter's Clay/Peanut Brittle and Teal Zeal 
Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers

Now to add a bit of interest I cut
a rectangle from MFT cutting through
both papers to show up when opening the card.
The sentiments here are from 
The background is lightly stenciled from

I'll pop this over to the 
Here for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate.

Thanks for taking time to pop in and read my
'rather lengthy post'
Love reading your comments -
PS - As it is Good Friday here I would like to 
Wish You a Happy & Safe Easter.

As if that stamped background wasn't fabulous enough, you went and added the cut outs for the butterfly and sentiment! Brilliant!!
