DOStamper STARs Thursday Challenge #185 - Home Sweet Home Challenge - Timeless Textures

Welcome to this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we are having a "Home Sweet Home" challenge using the picture below as inspiration. Don't forget to scroll down to visit the other Stars creations for this week.   

The butterflies caught my eye in this challenge.  Although, I am not particularly fond of butterfly cards I have found myself using them a lot lately in my card making.  Maybe I like to give butterfly cards, not receive them, hmm... I originally made this card earlier this week for a Pink and Brown themed swap on Swap-Bot. This is the third card I have made with this layout/design and it worked perfectly for this challenge.  The Timeless Textures stamp makes a wonderful random background in Soft Suede.  I chose to use Soft Suede because the Chocolate Chip ink looked almost black to me on the Pink Pirouette.  The ribbon is Early Espresso seam binding (retired) and the butterflies are from the long ago retired Butterfly Wings Embosslits.

Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette
Stamp/s: Timeless Textures, All About Everything (April Paper Pumpkin)
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush, Tombow Mono Glue, Dimensionals, Glue Dots
