I wanted to make a card for my daughter in law Ashley for when she comes home in 18 days. YES! I am so happy. Ashley and my grandson Silas will be home the 3rd, my son doesnt get to come home till the 14th :(. So I put this card into a celebration challenge because I am definitely celebrating their return. 
Okay now this stamp, I have wanted this stamp like forever. I first saw it when Michael Strong was on a craft show years ago, I dont have a link for the show but here is a link for the same project on youtube. I am going to be trying this technique very soon. But anyway he had a sale, no sales tax, so I got this for 7 dollars. So happy right now woohoo lol. I doubled the butterfly and I added rock candy distress crackle paint on the top butterfly and I only connected it on the body of the butterfly so the wings can fly.
