Newsprint

I fiddled around with various stamps I have in my collection for the newsprint element of this card, for the challenge at Colour Q, before downloading a little from the internet. It was much more in-keeping with the other parts of the card.
The image stamps are all from Stampin' Up of varying years (Kinda Eclectic, Papillon Potpourri and Joie) and the sentiment a new acquisition from Avery Elle, purchased at the craft fair last Sunday. The top two butterflies were punched and the lower one cut out by hand.
I added a few metallic studs to the centres of the butterflies.
And now I need to get the chicken into the oven for Sunday lunch!
