Simple One Layer Card

I have been so busy today and I've had no time to myself until now. So to unwind from my day I decided to craft............however, I didn't know where to start!!

In the end I went with the yummy colours at Simply Stampin challenge

and then over at Less is More it's a real tricky challenge of a ONE LAYER CARD using THREE stamps

Well, after what felt like a lifetime, I made this simple card 

Those of you who are not aware of Stampin' Up, ( which I use most of the time!!) may think that this is 2 stamps, but the butterfly is a 2 step stamp. The pink wings being 1, and the flower markings and body being 2, and the words are the third. For once I have stuck rigidly to Chrissie and Mandi's brief, so I hope I wont be on the naughty step today ( fingers crossed )

Recipe :
Card = White card base FMS
Stamps = Flight of the Butterfly
Inks = Regal Rose, Real Red, and Island Indigo
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig and Corner rounder

Tomorrow, I'm out again, but hope to be home in the afternoon for more crafting
