Butterfly thanks

I have been inspired to use vellum again after seeing some lovely designs on various blogs. I embossed the butterflies in white on vellum and then coloured them on the wrong side with distress markers. I attached the vellum to a panel which I stuck on the card base with dimensional foam.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
CAS on Sunday #44 "Emboss it"
Addicted to CAS #50 where the code word is VELLUM

Materials used:-
Butterfly stamp - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - SU Sassy Salutations
Distress markers - picked raspberry and salty ocean
Archival ink - cornflower blue (Wendy Vecci)
Pearls from stash

Thank you for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments. Margaret
