The layout this week over at Clean and Simple Challenge blog appealed to me straight away. It took me a little while to look through my collection of stamps to find one that I was happy with. In the meantime I kept a watching brief on the other submissions and I must say that I am blown away by the variety that has been achieved from a very simple design.
I chose a sunburst stamp that I haven't used before (guilt, guilt). The butterflies were punched from cardstock which had been coloured using the "direct to paper" technique as I wanted the colours to match exactly. I felt that I needed the embossed lines to contain the design and separate it from the sentiment.
