Oops - thank you!

Well, with the excitement of Harry arriving, I almost forgot to put the thank-you card for Mandarin Card Craft on. As I said before, it's to say thank you for the lovely goody box I won in their Prize Draw. 
Embossed two side panels on a piece of Perfect Image card stock from M, and punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch. Die cut butterfly (Marianne die ) from same cardstock, made backing butterfly with piece of vellum from stash. Inked edge of panel and butterfly with T,H. Distress Ink. Teal paper strip is Fleur-de-Lys by M, matted onto pearlescent card, again from M. Stamped a small thank you border around edge. Stamped and embossed sentiment,(from Joanna Sheen Wordy stamps - Set 3) and outlined with gold border. Attached brown organza ribbon to top of panel, again from J.S. Matted everything together, and onto dark brown cardstock, again from M. Finished with button from grans' button box, ribbon bows (ribbon from J.S.) with brad from stash. Clear drops from Polkadoodles, butterflys' body from Flowersoft, and tiny gems on antennae. Righty-oh, night night, see you soon. x
