Card Swap with new Hero Arts stamp

Hi friends
Today I want to share a card I created for Belinda Akers card swap that is hosted on Life on the Scrap Beach. The ladies in this swap are amazing and I am always very humbled when I receive my cards back. The talent is over the top.

I used a teal and brown striped paper from Little Yellow Bicycle that I found at Archivers and it worked perfect for the Spring theme. I used a new stamp from the Hero Arts line and stamped it with  an off white Dabber paint. I'm trying to use things from my stash that I haven't used in a while so this was a good choice. I did a fussy cut around the image and then glued it to a brown piece of card stock and again did a fussy cut but left a rim to make it pop. I adhered it to the same striped paper  from the same paper line that was cut with a Spellbinders die and added a Cherry blossom flower from I am Roses and a sweet pearl flourish from Michael's. I then placed it on the die cut with pop ups.
For the base I cut a piece of Brazil teal and embossed it with the script embossing plate, rubbed some of Tim's' tea die stain on it and attached it to the dotted paper. In the middle I adhered a lovely brown velvet, ruffled trim that I found at Hobby Lobby.  The little butterfly from a punch was added.
I loved how it turned.
