Butterfly card

Good Monday everybody,
I have been experimenting to make the "Perfect Flower". If you know what I mean. I bought some punches, I try die-cuts I try cutting my own leaves but no, its still not what I want. The ones I do like are either not big enough or small enough, sounds familiar? I try crimping, staining, distressing, glossing, aaahhhhhgg!. The last thing I try was gift tissue, again didn't work, or I couldn't do them. I was about to trow this paper away when i got this idea, stamping on it. What do you think?




 I throw away all my wrappers when I open things, which I'm finding out is a bad thing. I bought this stamp at Joann's don't know who made it : (  Stamp it on gift paper and use glue dots to put it up. I use black ink for the butterflies and for the sentiment I added matching  gems 


Inside I use S5-006 Spellbinders die-cut and a stamp from Fiskars.
I punch the edges with this punch I got on sale at Joann's. I enter this card in the following challenges:
