Mop Up

My background here was made from a piece of watercolour card I used to mop up the spills from a previous project!

I actually used this sketch from Stamp Ink Paper 
Instead of having a front panel, I used text stamping (Finnibar) on the edges. I had intended to put the butterfly (Avery Elle)  inside the distressed circle  (Inkylicious) but it was too small and I didn't want to use a smaller butterfly, so stamped it offset from the top right wing.

As well as Stamp Ink Paper, I'd like to enter:
Crafty Catz add a butterfly
Crafty Boots butterflies and bees
