MCT Thrifty Thursday

Hiya! It's Thrifty Thursday over at MyCreativeTime. We are using up scraps n such and making sure our project has green on it somewhere. I started by creating a background on my card base using the Bloom Where You Are Planted set. I stamped the flowers with Hero Arts shadow ink in Green Hills. I filled it in by stamping the tiny circles from that same set in Tide Pool shadow ink. I have had those butterflies on my table FOREVER, and decided they needed to get used! :) I stamped them with the polka dot stamp from the Coffee Break Stamp set using that Green Hills ink again. 
I stamped the greeting from the Floral Sentiments set with Tide Pool shadow ink. I embossed above and below it with the Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder. I added bling to the butterflies with my i-rock tool. 

Head over to Emma's Blog to see more creations. Have a fab day!
