The focal butterfly is part of the Penny Black stamp Gathering Together, you can see the rest of this beautiful stamp stamped on the large circle die cut using Spun Sugar Distress ink. I inked the butterfly with the same distress inks and then fussy cut using Cutterbee scissors which I'd say are a "must have" for any type of fussy cutting. Following the MFT sketch I cut out another (smaller) circle, inked the edges and adhered it onto the larger circle. My circle dies are an old die set by Nestablities.
The script stamped in black (using Versafine Onyx ink) I used on the top left and bottom right is an oldie from Whimsy Stamps, and the "Thinking of You" is from My Favorite Things, unfortunately also retired, but this stamp set is similar in style.

It's hard to see, but I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush on the butterflies, and I really do need to purchase a new one as it's running out of glitter!
Before adhering the card front to the base, I ran the Blueprint Sketch ink pad along the edges.
Thanks so much for visiting!!
