One Last May Release Card!

I love peach with gray.  There is something so classic about that combo.  When I picked up this gorgeous background stamp, Floral Dot, from Technique Junkies, I knew I wanted to stamp it in peach.  I love the subtle floral design on this stamp.
I used distress inks for stamping my background onto peach card stock.  I layered it on a dark peach card panel, then onto an A2 gray card.  I wrapped gray embroidery floss around and tied a bow.  

The verse, Began To Fly, is also Technique Junkies.  I stamped it in gray Ranger archival ink.  

The butterfly is from TJ's Peony Collage stamp.  I fussy-cut it from the stamped image, added color, then added some shimmer with my Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen.  A few sequins finish off my card today.
