Thank you butterfly


Hi everyone,
 I needed some thankyou cards for a male and am hoping these muted colours will fit the bill! Men like butterflies too right?!

I diecut the base of the butterfly from some glossy photo paper smooshed in oxide inks and water. When dry I wiped off the chalky residue with a baby wipe.

I love the font on this retired set by Annabelle Stamps , it's dated 2012!

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Tic Tac Toe, I went with the top row butterfly, diecuts and any sentiment.

Allsorts, butterflies or bugs

Word Art Wednesday, anything goes with a sentiment or bible verse on the blog

 Memory Box flitter side butterfly die; distress oxide inks & glossy photo paper; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die; Annabelle Stamps fanciful flowers sentiment stamp; versafine clair nocturne ink & clear embossing powder; hammered card base.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
