Also, I wanted to share a tip about cutting out images...now I am by no means perfect at cutting out images.  I often see that I didn't cut along the edges as close to the ink, like this image on the left.  To 'clean up' the edges a bit, I use a black marker and just ink around the edges, as you can see on the right image:

My cut out image looks neater along the edges when it's all put together, 
as you can see by my layered butterfly... layering also gives some awesome dimension: 

Let me know if you need some {ippity}....I'd be glad to help you with an order!
