The Stampendous butterflies are my first ever clear stamp set, dated 2004. I would have guessed they were older. 2004 doesn't sound like so long ago, but 13 years... I guess it's relative, 'cause, you know, the 70s don't seem like so long ago to me, either.

I also used an old script background, old sentiment, some leaves I've had quite a while. I even used some of my oldest Spellbinders dies. All details are in the recipe further down. The velvet ribbon was pulled from a drawer full of velvet ribbon that I hardly use anymore. All good stuff!
I took inspiration from the black and white butterflies and the flower color in the board below:
