For this card, I used the die with some lavender paper. Once the butterfly shape had been cut (all the butterflies remain attached at the top and bottom points of their bodies), I slipped a piece of scratch paper under each wing and inked it lightly with some purple ink. I also stamped the thank you beneath the heart. Once that was done I matted the lavender piece with some white cardstock and attached the whole thing to my dark purple card base.
I used a Viva Décor pen to add a little pearl to the center of each butterfly.
For the inside of my card, I used a butterfly border embossing folder which still left plenty of room for me to write a personal note.
I want to thank those of you who sent me get well wishes when I mentioned that I had experienced an awful bout of food poisoning. I want you to know that I am back to feeling 100% again. It is so nice to no longer have sore stomach muscles and to also have my appetite back (although it would be good for me to have kept THAT at bay for a while!).
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
