Pink and Purple Mini Flutters - Dies to Die for DT card

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I have 2 cards to share with you today so I am here bright and early with my first one using some gorgeous goodies from Dies to Die for.

I have used a fabulous stamp set from The Greeting Farm called Mini Flutters. In this set you get 5 different patterned butterflies, a sentiment and a matching die. Also, I have just spotted it's in the sale at the moment too!
The pink butterflies were stamped using Hero Art Shadow Ink. These inks are really great for solid images, the coverage is fabulous and the colours are gorgeous. For the purple butterflies I used a MFT Hybrid Ink pad which also stamps beautifully. 
I will show the side view first so you can hopefully see the dimension. The circle aperture has been raised with foam pads which is hard to see on my photo!





Items Used:



Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at first card of the day. I will be back soon with my Pink Gem Challenge DT card.
Bye for now
hugs
