Butterfly Thank you

My husband asked me to make a Thank you card for a lady who helped him with the Open House of the local curling club (he is President this year). So, I also incorporated a few challenges in this card.

-On the swirl paper I used blue chalk ink and sponged over the pattern. Also Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink on the edges.  On the brown paper, I used a script stamp, Martha Stewart clear butterfly, and also TH Tea Dye Distress ink on the edges.
-Cream organza ribbon overlaid with brown stitched ribbon binds the two patterned papers. 

- The oval was cut with Nesties and sponged around the edge with TH Tea Dye, popped up with foam tape. The thank you verse and oval is by Inkadinkadoo "Expressions & Frames" clear set. I then added Copper Stickles, and brown & cream pearls to highlite.
-Copper Stickles and pearls also highlite the butterflies

-EK Success embossed border punch on the bottom echoes the stamped pattern on the oval.



Allsorts Challenge #74 - Bingo  Line Right Down - Pearls/Mist, Stickles/Ribbon

Little Red Wagon #50 - Use Something New, Something Old.    Something new for me is the clear stamp set by Inkadinkadoo - "Expressions & Frames".  Something old is the ribbon and copper stickles.
