Butterfly Thank You

I got in some crafty time on Sunday.  I wanted to send a Thank You to Dr. Lover's and his staff at the animal hospital, who were so wonderful to me and Layla.  I looked through all my dog stamps and nothing really jumped at me, but this Studio G butterfly did.

I stamped three out and embossed in black. Then I used a few Distress Inks with daubers and colored them in.
I created a repeated Thank You background with another Studio G sentiment stamp and then stamped it one more time in black.  I glittered up the butterfly wings and added some bling.  I'm pretty pleased with the result :)

Hope you're having a great week!!!

Thanks for your visit!

This is just beautiful, Maria! I LOVE these warm colors and love the butterflies. I didn't notice the repeated sentiment at first, but WOW, is that ever cool! I've got to remember that and give it a try sometime. :)
