Thanks a Bunch! CR84FN15

Happy Thursday!

I have not had a chance to play at CR84FN yet, so I took some time today to pull out my Wilson Designs Stamp sets and put something together quickly since I need a Thank You note! My inspiration started with this butterfly punch I just recently purchased because I was enabled by my teammate Amy who encouraged me to go out and get it, so of course I had to do just that, and then I had to get the coordinating border punch! :-)

Lovely spring colors this week for their challenge, so that also inspired me to use my butterfly from Wilson Designs Spring Silhouettes. Also, a couple of the design team members used them, so it just kept coming back to me. One of my favorite things to do is create my own background paper with repeat stamping. Another favorite of mine is to stamp my sentiment over a focal image as I have done here.  My sentiment is from Wilson Designs Everythings Owlright. It's just an easy go to technique for a clean and simple design when you need a card quickly!

I punched three of those wonderful new butterflies out and then coated them with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. I had some twine that graduates in color, so I spun some of that around for fun!

I am also playing along with the Paper Cutz Challenge 78 - Ladybugs, Bees or Butterflies, Crafts and Me Challenges - Spread Your Wings and Fly. 

Hope you all are having a fabulous Thursday!

Beautiful butterfly background and I LOVE how you only attached the centers of the sparkly butterflies---makes them look like they are fluttering around!!
