Butterfly Thanks (IO Dies)

Hi, everyone!  Today I've made a thank-you card.  I've done something a little different for me - this one features no stamping or colouring, just dies.  I wanted to play along in IO Blog's Thanksgiving Wishes challenge.


I used my IO Butterfly Dies DIE008-I and IO Greeting Set DIE174-W and decided I liked the look of the negative.  The dark dp is from MME and the pink kraft is from Colorbok. I wanted to play around with my new Zutter Distrezz-it-All that I got for my birthday (thank you, Brian, I love it!) so I distressed the edges of the dp.  I really like the look!  I did some selective embossing of the panel with my Sizzix Honeycomb and added some baker's twine, gems, and a butterfly charm from my stash.

I would like to support the following challenges:

IO Blog Thanksgiving Wishes UE C5
Craft your Passion Something Beginning with B - Butterflies 1/3
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper AG with Patterned Paper UE
Dies R Us Thankful 3/3
Inspiration Destination AG UE

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!


P.S. I'm celebrating 200 followers with candy!  Help me celebrate! My candy is here.
