It's coming up to Thanksgiving time in the USA, and that means there are lots of challenges around at the moment with "Thank you" related themes.
Here in the UK, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, so I've made a generic thank you card. I picked this pretty butterfly card out of my snippets box - it's embossed, glittered and very tactile - and then found snippets of various colours of card to match the colours in the design.
The sentiment is cut with a Die-Versions die and the plain and fancy ovals with Spellbinders, all using the Grand Calibur. The words are backed with Stick-it - do any of you find the adhesive isn't terribly strong? You can see how the word "thank" slipped slightly while I was taking the photo - I've now straightened it and stuck it down more firmly!
I added some pretty ribbon and hand-doodled the border using a sparkly gel pen, although the sparkle doesn't show in the photo, and finished off with tiny butterflies punched from the very last scraps of coloured card.
