Quick post today since I have to get a million things done and not enough time to do them. This working thing for 9 hours a day is way overrated. Why did I want to grow up so much when I was little....oh wait I didn't really grow up I just live in a grown ups body:)

My card today features two stamps by Deep Red Stamps. The first is a BUTTERFLY and the second is a FLOURISH.

I stamped the flourish multiple times on the white cardstock with pink pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I die cut the scallops using a Spellbinders die. The butterfly I heat embossed in white and then I used distress ink to color it in. 
Cardstock by Neenah, Coredinations, Bazzill
