So Thoughtful


I decided today, that I need to keep more of this kind of card on hand. Seems that I just need to send a handmade thank you more often. You know, those little acts of kindness that sneak up on you from dear friends.
This is a card of many unknowns. My stamps are unmounteds I bought in a lot. What I did to the lettering was an experiment. I stamped it in Melon Mambo ink form SU! I decided to accent the butterflies as well as the sentiment with my opaque white gel pen. It did bleed a wee bit but it still looked okay. Then I did a triple play and accented again with diamond Stickles. My card stock is soft sand and I did piercing with my SU mat pack. I used Pop Dots on the butterflies and a few olive brads as accents.
Well, thanks for looking and hope all is well in your little part of the world!
