Double D Challenge - Black and White ONLY

We are nearing the end of April and soon we will into May.  Time has gone so fast for me, I bet for you as well!  So this time, the challenge is to do a black and white only. It is team Darlene fir this challenge, but check out the blog of all of the inspiration.

Just look at the lower right corner!  Gorgeous, and that was all I needed for my inspiration. 

My card
 This one was easy as I only used two dies and a stamp.  I will list them below.
Altenew Painted Butterfly stamp and die and the sentiment.
Poppy Stamps die Ragged Daisy ( cute three times, and glued together)
Fantastic Stamper Stitched Rectangles

I used the Stitched Rectangle die on the inside too and had some fun with the envelope.  I masked off a rectangle and then used the background dot stamp to cover the front of the envelope.  
I think it works. 

This is the prize that you would win, This is an easy challenge and I am hoping to see lots of entries.

The Prize


You can use this die in several different ways. 

Just go to the Double D challenge to place your entry. 
Thanks for the comments that you take time to leave for me.  
I do appreciate every one of them.
