With Gratitude


 I stamped the butterflies using chalkboard spray - I simply made up my own 'ink pad' using cut and dry foam, spritzed it with the chalkboard spray and then inked up my butterflies.  I cut them out, and then stamped the sentiment.  I cut the fancy edge and the music score, and then punched some little white butterflies.  A bit of placing and that was it really.

Not sure if I am overly happy with this card ... but a neighbour asked me to make a thank you card, and when I asked with what, she said "What have you got?"!!!  Lesson learned - don't let the neighbours into your craft space!!  So she decided on the dies and punches, the colours and the style- I just put it together ... so it is really her not me LOL!!  But she likes it.

Colouring medium: Tattered Angels chalkboard Grape

Embellishments: Memory Box music die, Stampin' Up edge die, Martha Stewart butterfly punch
