CCM #245 Thankful

As today’s is Armistice Day in the UK, our challenge for the next couple of weeks is thankful.

I made my card for my Daughter. She has a lot to put up with my health issues and she always listens patiently to when I need to moan. I would be lost without her.

The butterfly on my card is from Tim Holtz Geo Dies. I die cut the whole thing out of a clarity mask sheet so I would have it for use again, and then using the apeture left behind as a stencil I inked through the butterfly shape with Distress Oxides. I cut the butterfly again in silver sparkly self adhesive film and adhered this to the inked butterfly, and then fussy cut the whole thing out.

The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp. The shaped die matting layers are from a Go Kreate die set, and the glittery enamel dots came from Ali Express! Ebay on crack!!!!

A closer look at the butterfly.
