Heartfelt Thanks

Good Afternoon Everyone
I hope all is well with you and that you are having a good week, not too long until the weekend!

I wanted to make a thank you card for someone special so I decided to have another play with the stunning Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies set. This is one of my favourite stamp sets ever, the butterflies and sentiments included are gorgeous and I love the matching dies too.
My die cut border is made with a Memory Box die - it took a bit of practise with scrap paper to get the cut in the correct position!




Side view to  try and show the dimension!

Items Used:
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies coloured with Promarkers
Dies - Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies Die Collection
Memory Box Piestra Die


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Clearly Besotted Stamps Challenge - Take Flight
As you Like it - Your favourite Colouring Medium and Why - Promarkers, I love the range of colours, they blend so well and you can layer the same colour up which helps with shading.
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my card today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make
bye for now
hugs
