Paper, ink and some stickles for good measure

Is this not the coolest butterfly stamp?! I love it. It is from the Tim Holtz line and I just got it today from my LSS. I am working on a project for the Lime Light DT and we are only allowed to use paper, ink and glitter. It's interesting being so limited when I've gotten so use to the button here, the bit of ribbon there. The "buttons" I free cut by hand, distressed with ink and used my button hole punch on them. I did a bit of piercing and added some distress Stickles to the butterfly and background paper. The lace is a MS punch. I am pleased with how it came out. It's fun to challenge yourself and of course it's always fun to play with new stamps! Hope you are having a great week so far!
