Oh my goodness I did some stamping

I am not a very good stamper, I have to stamp and image about ten times to get it right. As they say  practice makes perfect and maybe one day I will be an OK stamper. I absolutely loved this stamp though and had to use it on this card, I know it is an extremely easy image to stamp but I still had issues with stamping it properly, I am happy with the way it turned out in the end, gotta start somewhere. I cut out the flowers and punched out the butterflies with my new butterfly punch that I absolutely love. The paper for one of the butterflies is the packaging in which the punch came in. I love to be able to recycle things and have to admit have been extremely lazy in doing this but will make an effort from now on.

The challenges I have included in this card-
Take Flight-City crafter Challenge Blog
Something Punchy-Stamp Something
Anything Goes-Ellephantastic Challenges
Anything Goes-Craftylicious Challenges

My craft area is now extremely neat, it took many hours to get it that way but it did get done in the end. Hopefully I can keep the room tidy from now on, believe me I would rather be doing something else other than cleaning up, I am sure many of you can relate.
