Love how this turned out, except I tried to stamp on the card after it had already been popped up.  I know better but sometimes it works.  I think I would have liked it better just stamped in black at bottom, but that's what happens when you screw up.

On Line Class Day 2 - Stamp plus Stencils with Kristina Werner

I didn't have the same stencil as Kristina but she said to use one that has lots of space and my stamping did not turn out too well either.  You can see a little bit in the upper portion on the middle butterfly.
