From the moment I first saw it, I could hardly wait to use the butterfly from the Move Me Thinlits. I love all the detail that results when you use both parts of the butterfly thinlits together. I'm also quite fond of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I cut equal widths of each of the four colors to create the background for my butterflies. Coming up with that dimension was the most difficult part of making this card . . . which I've already done for you! (It is an odd dimension and it's okay if they aren't perfect!)
Having the right word stamps is super important to me. Many times I will purchase a stamp set based more on which sentiment stamps are included in the set than the actual images. Rose Wonder is one of those sets. Be sure to take a look at the wonderful greetings that come in this set. You may want to add it to your repertoire. I consider word stamps to be necessary tools for card making.
