You are awesome! (Tiddly Inks image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Me again and this time I made my own background paper in a different way. I cut a square piece of cardstock the size I wanted the striped paper then used double sided adhesive tape on that square. I cut my scrap pieces of pink, mauve and black cardstock into thin strips and then added them onto the square. Once I'd covered the whole square I turned it over and cut all the overhanging strips. Then mounted it onto some black cardstock. The grey square was white cardstock that I added oxide ink to and sprayed water on it for some texture. The gorgeous image comes from Tiddly Inks. I also stamped 2 cute butterflies then fussy cut them out along with the image.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - flowers and butterflies (card no. 2) 
As you like it - Fave die and why - I love my stitched square dies as they go on any card so easily and I don't have to measure my square. I love the stitched element as it gives a lovely border to the square.
