Make It Monday #165

Today I have a card to share that I made using my brand new
PTI Life is Beautiful stamps & dies, along with this week's 


I started by stamping my butterflies in aqua mist & summer sunrise on watercolour paper
and then stamping their details in tropical teal & orange zest. 
Then, I took a paintbrush dipped in water and had some fun extending the images.
I also added some of the ink around the edges of the card.
The little butterfly was stamped in limeade ice.
The sentiment is from Framed Out #12.

Thanks for looking!
