Playing with Punches

So I had a play with some punches and paper... and here's the outcome.
I used papers from THIS pad, and THIS punch, my favourite.  The sentiment stamp is from THIS set.  I inked the edges of everything with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Love the dimension created by a bit of inking. :)

This is a beautiful card. I love the placement of the punched butterfly on
the flower patterns. If that makes sense. x
