Serene Thank You

I debated if I wanted to purchase the new butterfly punch because I already had the one that just retired.  Well, I bought it and I am glad I did.  Now, I did like the retired one, but this one is so much more elegant.  So, how fitting is it that Stampin' Up named it the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

A lot of Calypso Coral adorns this card - the cardstock, Designer Series Paper, ink and ribbon.  Just a bit of Very Vanilla cardsock for the layering and sentiment. 

To create the circle opening for the stamped image, I punched a 1 3/4" circle in the Designer Series Paper, positioned it on the Very Vanilla cardstock, and then stamped my image.  My Calypso Coral Bakers Twine was wrapped around the layers and I just used a piece of Scotch Tape to hold it in the back.  I added some pearls to my butterfly, and my sentiment was cut out using the Bitty Banners Framelits and my Big Shot.
