Butterfly Garden Thank You!

Hello Everyone and welcome to the release for JustRite Stampers new Heart to Heart set!!!  This set has four wide decorative borders and four sentiments to go in the middle - although you could use many of the JustRite sentiments inside these beautiful frames!!  :)

This set can be used for all sorts of occasions and I chose to make my card a Thank You card because you can never have too many of these stashed away ready at a moment's notice!!  :)

I created the base of Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, White and Kaisercraft Devonshire Tea DP.  Across the middle I added another piece of Chocolate that has been punched with the Iron Gate punch, topped with more Devonshire Tea and than added some organdy ribbon.  The feature panel has been made by stamping the sentiment and frame from Heart to Heart twice - once in Memento Bamboo Leaves and once in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The green one was then cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities, matted with chocolate cut with Small Oval Nestabilities and matted again with olive cut with Beaded Oval Nestabilities - all cut at the same time with my fabulous Grand Calibur!!!  I then turned to my black stamped image and coloured the butterflies with Copics (YR12, YR18 - found in the Orange Quad), cut them all out and popped them up on foam tape so they look like they are flying in a garden!  I also cut out the sentiment and popped it up on foam tape too.  To finish I added a bow to the ribbon and topped it with a button and then added some Chocolate pearls to the corners.
