Tone on tone butterfly thankyou...

I know I've shared a card with you before using the Butterfly Heart die by Memory Box, but it's just so darn pretty that I've decided to share another.

 
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 D├ęcor 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.
Cheryl

I am really in love with that butterfly heart die. Your card is so pretty. Sponging each butterfly wing took a lot of time but adds so much. And I also love that butterfly impression on the inside.

Sorry to hear you haven't been well, food poisoning is no fun at all!

Sorry to hear you've had food poisoning Cheryl. Unfortunately I've had it before and it's nasty - knocks the stuffing out of your body!
This card is beautiful! I love that butterfly die! I'll have to put the die and embossing folder on my wish list. Your card is stunning and very classy too Karen x
