Oh, Butterfly....

I needed a few Thank You cards to send. I wasn't feeling too creative, so I went looking for ideas. One of my favorite places for inspiration is Sharon Johnson's blog- No Time to Stamp.
I CASEd this card and layout from Sharon and ended up with this butterfly card. It was a great way to showcase some beautiful May Arts ribbon that I recently purchased and split with a friend. I can't wait to see what she makes with it!
I LOVE butterflies. Oh, you already knew that. It's hard for me to NOT buy a stamp set that has a beautiful butterfly in it. And I love the diecuts too! This butterfly is diecut from the Core'dinations Whitewash collection which has a color core. When I sanded it just a bit the color came through. It almost looks as if I have sponged on the color, but I didn't.
Hope you're having a fabulous week!
See you soon!
