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.

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

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

Thank you for visiting!
