For this card I used the stamp No. G1946 by PSX.
My card front is Bristol Vellum Paper (not to be confused with the milky transparent vellum sheets) and I used Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink for stamping.
I colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos. The sentiment is another oldie (this one is by Penny Black) - I do like using this sentiment on spring themed cards. The butterfly is part of Penny Black's Flowing Butterfly Die, it's meant to be used together but for my card I simply cut each butterfly off the cluster to use separately. I cut it out with white card stock but inked it up with Broken China and Blueprint Sketch distress oxide ink. Stickyback Rhinestones were added to the butterfly's body and I used some May Arts Jute Twine in Parrot Green around the bottom. The green designer paper is from my paper stash, this specific one is ancient by Stampin Up. For my card base I used Hero Arts Dove White card stock. I've been running low on my white paper for card bases and wanted to give this one a try. For anyone interested this is a 100lb bright white card stock works perfect for the purpose and it runs $7.99 for a pack of 25. It will cost less to get a ream of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb card stock which most of you know is a great quality as well.
Another photo below, here you can see the colors I used for this image. It's so much fun layering all the pencils to achieve the color I want. But it does take time.
