Counterfeit Kit blog hop for July

It has been a short scrapping month for me having only arrived home from Canada and Alaska on the 7th.
However I've jumped right into my CK and am enjoying it.
Our Challenge #3 is to make a Frame card.

I started with some old inks that are almost worn out plus pink cardstock.
The stencil was in a throw out bin at Spotlight.(I always check those)

I selected the crimson and formed my border.
Next is this set of stamps from my July kit. I'm intending to create my own butterfly paper.
I chose the swirly stamp on the rhs.
Here is how it looks on the inner card.

Next I lightly wiped the paler pink inkpad over the stamped image to provide a link to the background.(Unfortunately it looks better IRL, on here it just looks smudges.
I have also used some pink pearls to make the card a bit more special.
Now to the order of the blog hop.
