INSPIRED BUTTERFLY OASIS

Oh, is it ever fun to be on summer break ... just stamping away, sleeping in, and taking a nap whenever I want! I could really get used to this! My card was inspired by Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #119. I used Flight of the Butterfly and Inspired by Nature with Island Oasis Designer Paper from the 2010 Summer Mini Catalog.

RECIPE
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Vintage Labels ('10 SAB)
Paper: Island Oasis DP ('10 Summer Mini Catalog), Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black and Old Olive
Tools: Paper Piercer & Mat Pack, Priceless Classy Brass Template, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Butterfly Punch, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals


Hmmm ... shall I stamp or sleep?
