Happiness is a Butterfly

When I read the challenge on Less is More this butterfly stamp immediately came to mind, just needed time to make it. Then when I did I had problems with new wet pad and the fact that the Inkadinkadoo stamp was clear.
Eventually I tried Versamark inkpad on the stamp and then used the coloured inkpad it helped but I didn't get the even coverage I would of like but now I was wondering if I was just being fussy. There was no way I could leave the butterflies just flat so I picked three to layer but I did take the the gems off!
The words I've had for ages possibly one of the first unmounted ones I ever got.
The card is straight and so are the words its the photographer who is having problems!
So today I will keep checking the telly to watch Kate and Wills get married and I wish them many happy years together.
