Classy and Elegant

Hello friends!
I recently got some new Penny Black stamps and could not wait to play with them.

s
Bejeweled Cling Stamp 
 and

s
Butterfly Charmer

These stamps are truly classy. 
It was my intention to make an elegant card with these stamps.

I must admit this card is a bit "old-school". I try to update the style with some added dimensions with foam.  This is something I wouldn't think of doing just 2 years ago.

I applied Gold Stickle over the subtle stamped butterfly background. I think gold is a lovely addition to this colorful red/pink flowers. The green glitter paper provides a good transition from gold to the stamped flowers.  Spring is definitely in the air...

Thanks for stopping by!
(just in case...)

Whatayamean "old school"...a card like this is timeless. Love that you used the butterflies as an accent to that gorgeously stamped flower.
