Waiting for Butterfly Dreams

I have the die but not the stamp set - it was constantly out of stock when I wanted it! So I decided to go ahead and play with the die using some pretty pattened paper as I have seen on many blogs of late.


















The paper is from a really pretty pack from Papermania that my friend Lynn sent me and the quote is from a set by Stamp Camp.


Funnily enough the stamp set arrived this week after a little delay because of one volcanic ash cloud - so watch this space for many more butterflies!

This is beautiful! I actually bought the egg die without the stamp set on purpose because I knew I could use it with pattern paper like this.

Ooh, the patterned paper butterflies are just lovely, Chris! The soft, pretty colors and rhinestones go so well with the butterfly theme. I just may have to add that die to my PTI cart!
