Lotus Flowers and the Butterfly

Okay, I've said it before and I'll say it again... I LOVE the 'Lotus blossom' stamp set! It has to be one of the best Sale-a-bration stamp sets I've had before. It's just so pretty all on it's own or you can jazz it up! You're probably wondering what the heck is she talking about? That's a butterfly, where is the flowers? If you look closer you'll see that the entire background is stamped with the 3-step lotus blossom stamp! Its yummy rich tones of Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon. You can get this set for FREE with a $60 (before S&H and Taxes)... not too shabby!
The butterfly is diecut with the Butterfly Thinlits Dies, which are so stunning too. I went for a black butterfly, since I rarely create a card without some black on it. Plus, the background is so busy with all the lotus flowers that black seemed to give the most "pop" for the butterfly.
 Then I added some sparkly rhinestone jewels for the butterflies trail...
This is what the actual stamp set looks like. You it actually has numbers on the blossoms, they are not shown in the picture. Such a pretty set. 
I hope you like my share, have a super day :)
