Heartfelt thanks...

 If you're a regular to my blog, I know you've seen me use this die (my sister's) before, but it's such a great die by Memory Box and helps to make a very quick thank you card.

I used the die on some kraft colored cardstock. Then I inked the tips of all the butterfly wings with metallic gold ink and added a black gem to the centers. Do you see that one that slipped off center? I did fix it after I took the photo.  I used a striped embossing folder on the bottom of my card front and then tied on a sparkly black ribbon. Easy Peasy!

Lifting all the wings a bit, adds some wonderful dimension and allows the color of the black mat to peek through.

I just happened to have this stamp, which I thought was perfect for the inside!

If it hadn't taken a wee bit of time to ink each of the butterfly's wings, this card would have been done in a flash. But even with the inking, it didn't take very long at all.

I am looking forward to a weekend with my sister, so I may not be floating around blogland very much. I will try to get back on my blog-visiting schedule come Monday, though.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
