Butterflies and Best Wishes

I've had this background piece in my "card parts" for over a year. It was done by sponging distress inks onto ivory cardstock, then spritzing a stencil and placing it over the inked piece. The water removes the ink and leaves the pattern of the stencil. I die-cut the edge with a Memory Box die. The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up! set called "Sincere Salutations." I added a couple black strips along the left side. The card base is ivory.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

LYNETTE, I have a question for you...which die cutting, and embossing machines do you have, and which one do you prefer for different jobs?
You do such a GREAT job at both.
