Beautiful Artistic Outpost Butterfly

Just a reminder before I get started, that AO's newest sheet, Hero, is in and ready for you to play with! I just got mine today, and I can't wait to get started. I also got next month's sheet, which I can't tell you about, or I'd have to kill you. This stamping stuff is very serious!:)

This is from Happiness, one of the sets I turn to regularly, and this is a very simple card. I stamped the butterfly in Chestnut Roan Chalk ink on Confetti, and used SU!'s Ticket Corner punch on the corners. I put that up on foam tape and ran some trim from Hot Off The Press, layered on Flourishes' fabulous brown satin ribbon underneath. All the patterned paper is HOTP, and I added some Martha Stewart glitter in Brownstone around one panel. Then there's some edge inking and a Big Lots! metal emblem and that's it! Simple!
