Daffodils and Butterflies

 I am having fun with a few of my new stamps and dies that came in the mail this past week.

The stamp is Stamploration Framed Daffodils.  The die is Birch Press, one of three butterfly cuts.
I pulled out some old designer paper, added some distress ink on the edges and on the image around the flower.
The image was cut out with a Spellbinder die - almost the same size as the framed flower but stamping the image in brown and adding some distress ink, I think the rectangle frame edges aren't very noticeable.  The next size up for the dies was too big so I traced it onto the brown Kraft and cut it out free hand.
I love daffodils and narcissus.  Every year I tell myself to plant some when I see the beautiful clumps growing in other peoples' yards, even in the fields.  Next year!
