Thankful Butterfly

Yesterday I was hopping along on the Our Daily Bread blog hop for their new releases this month and was so inspired by what I saw! This particular card was inspired by Chris Olsen on her blog Twinkles Glow with Stamps. If you comment on each of the ODB design team blogs you will be in with a chance to win either $15, $20 or $25 to spend in their online store! Check the Our Daily Bread Blog for more details!

The patterned paper I used as the base for this card is from Stampin'Up about 4 or so years ago, but I still love the colors and patterns. I wanted to include some lace ribbon on this card, but seeing as I do not have any I just used my lace border punch to fake the 'lacy look'. The 'Thank you' sentiment is from a small clear set by Technique Tuesday that I got at the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Charlotte last month.

The corner flourishes are from the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge using one of the label layers. It was originally a circle of flourishes and I just used my small detail scissors to cut the image apart and use two parts for the corner details. I then added the tiny flowers which were the cutouts from a floral border punch. They were so small and fiddly - I had to attach them using teeny tiny glue dots.
