Pop It Up!

That's the current challenge at the A Day For Daisies blog and there's some gorgeous freebie musical butterflies digi stamps to download and use...
 
I wanted to keep my card really clean and simple:
 
 
 
 
I printed and cut out the digi stamp several times in a couple of sizes and then used Distress Inks on my craft mat to colour the largest butterfly. The colours looked so yummy that I thought they'd look fabulous just contrasted against a plain white card. I folded a card blank to make a mini easel card and attached my butterflies so that they were "fluttering" up the card, layering the patterned butterflies over the plain ones and folding up the wings on the top ones.
 
A sentiment stamp (by Stampotique) finished things off nicely.
 
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps - Animal Friends
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday - No Rules
The Crafty Pad - Use An Animal
CAS-ual Fridays - Over The Edge
