Butterfly Thank you Card

Wow, third post in one night! Ok so the other two posts were not of projects I have been making. You see I cannot show those yet as they are for a card swap group I belong to and I know some of you stalk me on here :). I hope the person I am making this for does not come to the blog for a few more days but I just had to share this card with you all as I think it turned out pretty nice.

I cut the butterfly at 3.5 inches from the Rock Princess cart. All the card stock I used for the butterfly were just scraps out of my scrap bags I have so I cannot tell you where they are from. I used stickles on many parts of the butterflies body. I did not adhere the antennae to the card as after I put the stickles on they did a neat curvy effect and I loved it. Yes a mistake that was a good one folks! 

The base of the card is kraft color cardstock and cut at 5 x 7. I also had to use the faux stitching on the outside. 
For each mat I cut them 1/8 of an inch smaller than the paper behind it. The purple is again from my scraps, but the paper on top with the circles is from the Colorbok Embellishment Punch Out Bright pack.  

I don't remember what line of stamps the sentiment was stamped from. If I figure it out later I will be sure to let you know!

Thanks for taking time to come by and look and don't forget about my blog candy!
