Pleasant Poppies Butterfly Card

I just can't believe I forgot to show you these gems that I made last month at Terri's Stamp-A-Stack.  

I do not have this Pleasant Poppies background stamp.  I'm still thinking about it.  It's way down on my wishlist.  I do like this card but I have not seen many cards using this image.  There were a couple that I did see that colored in the poppies.  I'm not sure I want to do a lot of coloring.  So that is why the stamp is down on my wishlist.  Besides, there's plenty of other images that I want a whole lot more! 

This is a very simple card to make too.  After the background was stamped and the scalloped edge put on the butterfly was punched out.  It was punched out using some decorative paper. If you click on the image you can see a closer view of the paper.  From here it looks like it was colored in but nope!  It was stamped on the decorative paper and then punched out.  And it's hard to see in the photo but it's punched out twice and layered on top of each other with a Dimensional.  Such a cute idea.  Though Terri has such great ideas for her cards.  She makes so many of them.  I think I would run out of ideas.  What?  I have run out, that is why I've been picking them off of Pinterest or Split Coast Stampers lately.  

I like this wide area at the bottom of the card.  I can add a layered label punch words there if I want.  A  ribbon, buttons or brads.  

It was a fun, quick and easy card to make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
