mariposa. . . .

is one of the original Stampers Anonymous stamps that I purchased in the year 2000.  I decided to use it for this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show, which is anything goes. 


Everyone loves this theme for a challenge and there are lots of entries every time.  But, someone always wins, so it's worth a try, right?

Here is my card:



I stamped the image on Bo Bunny patterned paper.  Portions of the image were then paper pieced.  The large butterfly was stamped on another patterned paper, cut out and distressed around the edges.   Lots of Stickles platinum glitter added to it and just glued in the center and the wings elevated by shaping them a little with my fingers.  The large scallop border is from PTI and the base of the card is covered with Tim Holtz patterned paper. Some sparkly Sticko gems were also added. 

Hope you are having a lovely weekend!
