Butterfly Cards

I thought I would try to highlight some of the fabulous Hostess Rewards stamp sets that are available with the Jump in it July campaign (scroll down to see the details or contact me for more information).
Today, I used the "Paper Bird" (C1613) stamp set to make a set of six cards using scraps of Brushed, Blossom and Balloon Ride (no longer available) papers with matching cardstock and stamp pads. These cards are going to be used to help raise money for Operation Smile

This card was created using:
Colonial White Cards
