Here is my card done with this set.
This is such a great background stamp set.  The sentiment is beautiful too. I cut the stamp out at the border and used sparkly chalks to color the large butterfly.  It doesn't show up well in the photo but it is really pretty.  I used a Darcie embossing folder behind the panel and added the sentiment tied with twine.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog this week for the first part of our hop.  I have loved reading all your amazing comments.  Thank you all so very much.  Please hop along and see the rest of the teams beautiful work done with this set.
