Hi everyone!  I had a busy weekend with the baby's birthday, but it was a nice day and she had a great time.  It's hard to believe that she's 2 years old now.

Today I'm sharing a thank you card I needed to make and I right away thought of this stamp set.  All I did was stamp the flower butterfly image using my pretty in pink ink and then I stamped over that using the dotted outline butterfly stamp and my perfect plum ink pad.  The stamp-a-ma-jig makes matching up the two images and my sentiment so easy.

Next, I stamped my sentiment and the second smaller butterfly.  I used my perfect plum marker to add the dots in the center of the flowers on the larger butterfly and the center of the dots on the smaller butterfly.

My pink background paper is a retired pp from SU and my perfect plum background paper is actually card stock that I've added a few white dots to using my white gel pen.

And finally, for my embellishment I decided to add a silver spiral clip with a small piece of white ribbon and I also added some dazzling diamonds glitter onto the flowers of the larger butterfly.  I hope you like my card!

Tomorrow it looks like my kids will have yet again, another snow day.  I'll try my best to get a card posted tomorrow with the kiddos home.  Have a great day!
