Stempelglede DT - A Flutter of Butterflies

 Good morning!  Today I'd like to share a card using lots of gorgeous stamps from Stempelglede.  I have used stamps from three different collections on my card.
 All of the butterflies were stamped with stamps from the Vintage Baby set.  I have stamped them onto watercolour paper and painted them with Distress Inks before cutting them out.  All of the butterflies are completely stuck down except the white ones.  I wanted to give the effect that the coloured butterflies were part of the paper and some 'live' white butterflies had landed to join them!  The handwriting behind the butterflies is the French Script stamp from the Post Card from Paris set.
 Around the edges of the card I've used the grunge splatter stamp from the Grunge Collection.
 On the left and right edges I have also used the grunge scroll stamp from the Grunge Collection.  After painting the butterflies I have added white gel pen to some of the markings.  I have also used the gel pen to create faux stitching around the edge of the card.
 I also decorated the envelope with the butterfly stamps and again added markings with a white gel pen.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

An absolutely stunning card!
I am in love with it Jane :o)

May I please ask you a question?
I have tried ordering stamps from Stempelglede but I can't find an English Translation.
I also have no idea what their money is called - it sounds so expensive at 25,000 LOL
Would you be able to help me out?
Many thanks, Candy
