Thanks - Create with Connie & Mary #343

BRRR!!! It sure is cold here!  Minus 33 C over night and the high today is only going to be minus 25C.  Plus we're expecting more snow tomorrow!  Thank goodness my son shovels the driveway for me or I don't know what I would do.

Today I'm making a card for the Create with Connie & Mary sketch challenge here

I've been wanting to use some of the SAB Irrisibly Yours DSP for some time now, and with this sketch I could do it.  I stamped a butterfly from the "Papillion Potpourri" stamp set randomly on a piece of this cardstock using Memento ink.  Then I blotted most of it off before applying the colour.  For some reason I felt like the colour blue today.  When I applied the Marina Mist, and wiped off the excess it looked like the butterflies were flying behind the leaves.

At the bottom I placed a piece of Whisper White cardstock at an angle, and attached the sentiment "Thanks" from the "Hello You" thinlet die.  This I die cut in black to pick up the colour of the butterflies in the background.

A piece of Whisper White satin ribbon separated the two papers.

Three Daffodil Delight flowers were punch using the Itty Bitty flower punch from the Itty Bitty Occasions pack.  They were attached to the card above the ribbon on the left side, and large rhinestones placed in the middle.

I punched 2 more flowers and placed them around the sentiment.  Another butterfly was also stamped, punched using the butterfly punch and added above the sentiment.  It was touched up with a bit of Marina Mist blue using a marker.

Here are the supplies I used:
