Kindness Matters - PPA108

This week's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is to create a card using this picture as inspiration.  The challenge was to "soften the edges".

Here is what I dreamed up:

Challenges are a good way to stretch yourself and maybe create something you wouldn't have thought of.  I adore this new little stamp set "Kindness Matters".  It is only $8.95 in clear mount and $11.95 in wood mount.  

I used the Circle Scissor Plus cutting tool to cut a 3-1/2" circle out of Cajun Craze card stock, and the sweet little butterflies are stamped right onto the colored card stock with Early Espresso Ink and cut out by hand.  Tip:  I always use a glue dot to attach little flowers or bows.  Don't want those little guys falling off!
