CAS Butterfly Thank You

I had fun today designing a thank you card using the current CTS #163 designed by Chrissy Larson.

I used SU Wildflower Fields DSP from the SAB catty and a SU retired Washi Tape.  I then used SU markers to ink up my STAMPlorations "Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds" stamp and spritzed with water to give it a Watercolor look.  I stamped my SU "Papillon Potpourri" butterfly using Memento Tuxedo light grey ink and colored with SU markers: Calypso Coral, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  Spritzed with water and then punched out with my SU Elegant Butterfly punch.

I shaped my butterfly with my bone folder, added gel medium for a bit of gloss and clear Wink of Stella for glitter and attached with dimensionals.

Adding my Simon Says Stamp "Lots of Thanks" sentiment for the final touch.

I am adding my card to several more favorite Challenges.
