Clean & Simple Day 4 - 1 Stamp, 3 Ways

Today is day 4 for the Clean & Simple online card class and it's also the 4th day of making a card with a technique I have never done before.  Today the lesson was to take a background stamp and use it in a different way so I used number dies in a solid color, stamped them with VersaMark and used white embossing powder.  I had these butterflies forever and was so happy that they matched the color on the card, I think it turned out to be a nice finishing touch.  Thanks for taking a peek!
