Purple Flower Thank You Cards

Inspired by Alison's Vintage Painted Petals card I used Stampin' Up's Hand Painted Petites
to make these "thank you" cards.

Here are the first 8 that I made.
I used old book paper, which was rather delicate.
When I stamped the 2 small butterflies from the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry CLEAR stamps,
part of the book paper ripped off, sticking to the CLEAR stamp.
I hid the mistake with a punched butterfly.
There was no problem with ripping when I used the PSX wood block rubber dragonfly stamp.

Here are six more cards. I found the wood mounted rubber butterfly stamp
that I originally wanted to use, so I added it on a couple cards.
Also, I used a bud stamp from Hand Painted Petities
for the flowers in the lower left corner on these.

Stamps: 
Stampin' Up!, PSX, Tim Holtz visual artistry, Inkadinkado

Inks: 
Stampin' Up! lavender lace, orchid opulence
Distress mowed lawn
Versafine Black Onyx
