Butterfly thank you card

Hello again!

Here with a pretty butterfly/monochromatic card today.
My favorite color is purple so I of course had to make this shades of purple.

I kept it quite simple.
I started by cutting about 1" strips of my purple card stocks and adhered on a white card base alternating what color to put down. I then ran this through my cuddle bug using that sweet butterfly embossing folder. 
Added my sentiment and some different shades of purple sequins and that finishes the card!

I will be playing along with Virgina's View Ombre/Monochromatic challenge.


Will also be playing along the The Card Concepts butterfly effect challenge, in the clean and graphic category.


Thank you once again for dropping by! 
Have a lovely day!:)

  4. Clean & simple glorious-ness (....is that a real word? If not, it should be....especially in our crafting world!). I adore purple so my heart was pitter-pattering at an accelerated pace when I spied this beauty! So glad that you chose to share it with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)

  7. Handmade striped paper! Now why haven't I thought of that? I love stripes and lament when I can't find what I have in mind. Now, thanks to you, I will think to make my own! And then to emboss it to make it cohesive as if it were DSP? Mwah! Shannon, you have an excellent eye for design and I think some of these stamp companies and challenges should take notice!! Hugs, Darnell
