This is for Color Challenge 423 - Quite a River Breeze. Butterfly is from Penny Black's Social Butterfly. It was stamped on WW in Not Quite Navy and then masked. I over-stamped it with my Flourishes BG Cover-A-Card in Soft Suede, and then sponged with Tea Dye and Antique Linen Distress Inks. Then I removed the mask, cut it out using the large rectangle from my Fancy Postage A2 Nestie set and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo to darken them. I attached an Aqua Mist Flourish before gluing it down onto an Aqua Mist frame. Flowers are punched from Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides (PTI) using my SU Boho Flowers punch and embellished with pearls. The striped BG (my dessert!) is Chestnut Roan Colorbox chalk ink over River Rock CS. Card base is PTI's Ocean Tides.
Thanks for looking!

You're getting great looks with the Flourishes CAC. I'm glad it was a worthwhile purchase :D.
I was going to say this reminded me of a postage-stamp design, and then I realised it was probably the edges had made that statement to my subconscious, LOL. I didn't realise that set had such small notches. I must look into it, as I've had fun with the Faux Postage tutorial.
