Love the texture you achieved with that gorgeous stamp; I think I need it too! A great save by cutting a frame and adding the lovely butterfly. It all looks warm and rustic with the hessian.

OK, so I'm like really late to this party, but that's ok, because I have just been inspired (enabled) beyond belief! That crackle on your frame is AMAZING, and I loved reading and seeing how this came together at IB. I love what you can do for a lowly composition book and I am truly INSPIRED! Sending hugs! Oh, and the reason I found out about this is that awesome win at one of the challenges--I'm sure there are more. :):)
