It took me a while to figure out this Swallowtail stamp, but now I can't stop! I wasn't sure if the butterfly should be a background image and how to build over it. It is so highly detailed, and it doesn't fit on the face of a card. . . but I think that is the idea. It needs to spill-over, to go beyond.
You may remember that my stamping group had an ombre challenge, this was the second idea that I offered. I had already cut all the circles and cardstock for the card I shared yesterday, so I brought this along for inspiration. This would have been much less work! But I am happy with both options.
This is one of those cards that I can't figure out how to put a sentiment on the face, so it won't get one. It is always such a shame when a lovely card is ruined by a sentiment forced into the design, so you can just write happy birthday on the inside!
