MIM # 205 confetti Cluster Stamping

I think doing the cut threw for the sentiment didn't work so good this time..not sure if it is because I needed it wider than normal, or if I should have actually cut a section out rather than one cut and separate, if you know what I mean.  The poor bottom butterfly looks a lot distorted!  Could you even tell they are butterflies?
I traced the die and then used these stamps for stamping inside the butterflies:
Birthday Style:  the confetti
Feather Finery: the inside of the smallest feather
the sentiment is from Life is Beautiful

  2. This is so pretty, and I could tell right away, even from the little thumbnail on Nicole's blog, that they are butterflies. And, I was thinking that butterfly was such a good idea to use as a shape.

  4. I could tell right away they were butterflies too Colleen! We are our own worst critics, aren't we?! But anyway, I think using the butterfly for this technique was an awesome idea, and all your beautiful colors and little stamps make this one cheery card! :0)
