Let Your Dreams Take Flight

After recently acquiring a set of circle stamps I just had to find an immediate use for them so I guess one could say that the circle stamps provided inspiration for the layout.
Using the MISTI to achieve solid images, the large yellow butterfly was stamped at about the center point, the circles and spheres were stamped in gray, followed by the small butterflies in eggplant ink. Another yellow butterfly was stamped, fussy cut and added over the first butterfly, leaving the wings free. The sentiment is carved into the butterfly stamp, "Let your dreams take flight."
The stamped panel was adhered to a panel of eggplant cardstock and then to a white card base. The inside of the card was decorated with stamped circles and butterflies.

This card is being submitted to:
