Butterfly Thank You Card & Tags {SUO70}

Pin It Now! I see I'm not the only one who's SO happy that all of Stampin' Up's butterflies are here to stay for another year!  SUO Challenges has noticed too, and is posting a challenge using butterflies.  I need to make thank yous for customers to tuck in orders, so I made these embossed butterflies, and used one to finish a card...

My first attempt at a tag was using Fine Feathers, and I didn't like the way it looked late last night.  Looking again this morning, it's not bad, really!  I'll have to revisit that idea another day ;)
The second largest Beautiful Bigz butterfly is embossed with the soon-retiring Lacy Brocade folder, which is rubbed with the Melon Mambo ink pad.  Epic Day This & That DSP, cardstock, and ribbon are layered on Sahara Sand, with a little spritzing to pull the colors together.  "Thanks" from Kindness Matters is glittered around the edges with Dazzling Details.  
The Melon Mambo strip has a stamped strip using the Chamomile wheel. 
Hope you're having a great week!  Glad you stopped by :)

Love the inked embossing folder (that is one of my favorites- so sad to see it retire so soon)- plus the use of the Epic Day DSP along with all of the other details makes for one spectacular thank you!! So glad that you could join us at SUO Challenges- have a great week!
