Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using "Buttercup"

Hello Bloggers, It's Tuesday and that means it's time for the Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday challenge!!! Our wonderful sponsor for this week is ShapeEZ by TLC.

And here is my project:

Our challenge this week is "Anything Goes"! This is always a favorite because you can make whatever your heart desires!  Since I have been in a "Christmas Mood", I decided to make a Christmas ornament.  My base is a butterfly which came from a template by ShapeEZ.  This was so much fun and super easy to put together.  I decided to stick with my traditional Christmas colors of green and red.  The base is cut using some Bazzil embossed paper in red.  I also used this to fill in the spots on top of the butterfly along with some red rhinestones to give it some sparkle.  The green card stock is from Recollections. I edged all the papers with some Tim Holtz distress ink in Frayed Burlap. The sweet image in the middle of the butterfly is  called Buttercup. She comes from the Conie Fong collection from Sweet Pea Stamps. She is so precious and I thought she was perfect for this project! I wanted to add the little butterfly which is also part of the image. I stamped her using my memento ink in Black Tuxedo and colored her up with my Copic markers.  I put some dimensional stickers below her to pop her up.  The cute red and white flowers bordering the lower base of the butterfly are from I am Roses.  I added some pearl trim behind the butterfly as a strap so I can hang my ornament.  I'm really loving the way this came out  and also happy that I was able to make a Christmas ornament with this project!
