More Butterflies...

Today I'm sharing a thank you card I created using the layout from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge 221 and featuring the Mini Thank You Stamp Set from Studio Katia!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

The sentiment and butterfly are both from the Mini Thank You Stamp Set by Studio Katia. Isn't it GORGEOUS?!?!!! My crafty friends and I were gifted this set at a retreat in April, and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much, Studio Katia!!!

I embossed the sentiment and butterfly in gold and then added a tiny bit of color to the butterfly with Copic Sketch Markers. I also embossed a few dots on and around the focal panel as a finishing touch.

Because of all of the gold shimmer (on the paper and with the embossing) this was a very tricky card to photograph. Here's another look to show off the shine:

I'll be snail mailing this to some friends who hosted a wonderful Indian dinner to celebrate the end of the university school year!
