story of a butterfly (stamp)

I fell in love with this Stamp when it was first introduced but I couldn't swing the funds at full price to buy it... bummer for me. And I was sad. Very sad.

Then about two weeks ago, Unity was running a special and it included some of their Artistsa's including some of their line in celebration of 14,000 Facebook friends (of course, one of those is me)... WAHOO!  I'm a lucky girl :-)

Then it came in the mail and when I got it, I was just blown away at it's beauty.  I KNEW what I wanted to do with it for it's virgin run... Vellum!  and boy did I use it.

I also knew instantly when I saw this Freshly Made Sketches #116 that it would be PERFECT for this stamp!

  1. Dropped by from Facebook to see why you couldn't decide which one you liked the best. I can't decide which one I like the best either. They all look great to me.

  2. These are so gorgeous! I got this stamp during a recent sale also, but sadly haven't used it yet.
