Simple Stamping

Hello friends!
I am sharing a card that is 100% stamped. 
I am using this gorgeous stamp set called "Bouquet Ballet".
love kisses and birthday wishes -001

I stamped the image with Distress Oxide on the regular 110 lb paper.
I also added extra borders (top & bottom) from the Square Frame with vellum.
It's all in the details, right?

With very minimum water, I can add a bit of coloring to the iamge without wetting the card stock. I love that option with Distress Oxide. I always use the old Wink of Stella brush for this purpose!

To keep the image interesting and in motion, I added the butterflies from Paper Scrolls Die.
This Paper Scrolls Die is not cheap, but the lovely butterfly die is definitely a good bonus!  

I am starting to hear birds in my neck of the woods... Spring is not too far away now. 
 Thank you so much for stopping by!

This card is beautiful! I love the light watercoloring and the Butterflies are the perfect addition. Very cool on the vellum borders, I'm definitely going to try that. Thanks for sharing and for the wonderful inspiration. (
