Hero Arts Butterfly


Our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps this week is "Thank You"!

My card says "grateful", that's the same thing isn't it?  I used a Papertrey Ink stamp that I thought was really pretty to finish my card and use up the large space I had, I'm grateful to have this beautiful script stamp set in my collection.

My Hero Arts butterfly  butterfly comes in an acrylic stamp set and as a digital image from Two Peas In A Bucket.  I used the digital image so I could make it as big as I'd like and colored it with Copic markers in one of my favorite color combinations, orange and blue.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

This card is so beautiful. Love the way the blue spots on the butterfly compliment the backing! I think "grateful," is a deeper level of Thanks, or Thanks cubed! Lori

Grateful, thankful,all the same thing. It's just nice to know enough to be thankful for everything we are all lucky enough to have. I love the orange and blue. Great card, Jan.
