Happiness is Like a Butterfly – by Deb Felts

And happiness is also playing with our NEW Distress Oxide Inks by Tim Holtz! If you’ve tried them, you’ll understand!!! Deb beautifully combined the Distress Oxides with butterfly image and sentiment stamps from the Nature Sketchbook collection by Graphic 45. Super gorgeous – take a look:
