Brilliant Maple Branch Thank You Card

Thank you it is Friday, it is so hot and steamy here in Memphis. We had some much needed relieve last night with some rain but it will be very humid today I am sure and with that being said we had early morning with roofers next door. They started at 5:15 and Charlie started barking minutes later, so it was early to rise. So I decided to finish a card I started yesterday. I am using my Memory Box Maple Leaf Branch along with the Cocoa Bean Butterfly and the Minuet Paper Pak.

I stamped my Brilliant Maple Branch on the tan polka dot paper from the Memory Box Minuet paper pak using Memento ink, using YR12 and YR68 colored them in. I took my Tim Holtz ruler and did some line work on the paper on thetan polka dot and green paper. Did you notice I triple matted my project, the blue paper is from the same pack;I took the left over blue paper stamped my Cocoa Bean Butterfly, fussy cut it out and using some Distress Crackle Paint went over one of them.

Once it was dried I put my card together, I distressed my sides with Tea Dye Distress ink, Chestnut Roan ink, added my my butterfly by gluing one flat to the card and then just gluing the center of the second that I had added the Distress Rock Candy togive my butterfly dimension. I also added a small trinket to the right of card and a Thank You sticker to the bottom of my card.
