For this card I first stamped with Hero Arts flourish in white ink to make a background.  Then I made a stencil from Hero Arts butterfly die and used a dauber and ink to make the butterfly over the background.  Added a bit of glitter to the inside of the butterfly, added a sentiment and done and dusted! 

It was difficult to get the background and glitter to show in a photo, but it really quite pretty in real life!  I have left the inside blank for the time being as there are a variety of sentiments that could be added inside.  A gift set with strips of sentiments like "happy birthday", happy day", "happy spring", or whatever could be added with the set so the recipient could use it for whatever.  Will enter this in Virginia's View stencil challenge.

Stamps: Wplus9 "Easter Bunny"; HA CG119 flourish
Inks: HA soft pool; Colorbox frost white
Other: HA D1078 butterfly die; Wink of Stella

Thanks for looking and your kind comments.  Betty
