Butterfly Thanks

We recently had a cyberstamp over on Jayne's downline forum, and this is the card I made for the sketch challenge. I decided I hadn't been using enough purple lately so I settled on Orchid Opulence, to be accompanied by Creamy Caramel and a couple of other colours I haven't used very much - Bordering Blue and Buckaroo Blue. The card base is a little Stampin' Up! notecard, which I recieved as part of my Elite Stampers Secret Santa pressie (thanks Cass!). The Merci butterfly was stamped on watercolour paper using StazOn Jet Black and coloured using an aquapainter to pick up colour from the inkpads. The Lots of Thoughts sentiment was stamped on Whisper White using Buckaroo Blue. The butterflys trail was done by free-hand paper piercing. Both of these stamp sets are only available as benefits of Sale-A-Bration.
