"Happy Poppies" For TSOT #229

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I'm here with my newest card for The Try Stampin'-Or Not-On Tuesday blog challenge.  
I really loved this sketch from design team mate, Hillary, and find it offers endless possibilities.  
There is also a flower theme this week and you can use the theme or not.  I chose to use it for my background.  Flowers and butterflies go hand in hand, don't you think?  
I'd love to see you share your creations on the TSOT blog or on the Facebook page at:  Try Stampin' - Or Not- On Tuesday Challenges.

Happy Stamping!

Ok, now onto my creation for this sketch challenge:

My card:

The first designer paper that popped into my head for this sketch and theme challenge was Pretty Petals.  This paper is one of my favorite things in the new Idea Book this year.  

You can't really tell in my photo, but the white background paper is from the new Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP.  I chose the tree bark embossed design.  I like the subtle effects it offers in person.  I also love the effects of the new White Perfect Accents.  I think they're just the right touch on this card.

Then, of course there are the details.  They add so much to a card, don't they?  I really enjoyed how my little butterfly turned out.  
I used the Watercolor Wings Bundle 3 step stamp set and the Butterflies Thinlits Dies to create the little fellow, using Tuxedo Black, Watermelon Wonder, and Calypso Coral inks.
And the double "hello" was created with both Color Me Irresistible DSP in white and the new In Color Envelope Paper in Watermelon Wonder using the Hello You Thinlit Dies, another of my favorite items in this catalog!
