Rustic thankyou.

Hi everyone, a work colleague wanted a thankyou card with a country feel.
I know she likes butterflies and she also likes the look of timber, so I combined them.
It's a design I've used before but for a different occasion.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More where the theme is make your mark.
I used distress inks to colour the timber panel and the butterflies are coloured with Inktense pencils and a waterbrush.

At Happy Little Stampers, it's anything goes with dies.
I've used a sentiment diecut, covered with veramark and embossed with frantage embossing enamel.

The Mix it Up Challenge blog has an anything goes with the optional twist of mixed media theme. My card may fit the mixed media option as I've used the frantage enamel and distress inks.

At Simon Says Wednesday the challenge is to use a die or a punch. I've used a W plus 9 sentiment die.
