Butterfly Basics from Stampin' Up! for perfect thanks

Last week it was my birthday! I had a wonderful time and received lots of lovely gifts from family and friends and so I wanted to make them all some thank you cards.  

I turned again to my new In Colours from Stampin' Up! and having been inspired by a swap I received at the Stampin' Up! regional event last Saturday I made these using a mask that I cut from a piece of whisper white card stock to cover each card so that I could sponge on a light layer of mint macaron and then stamp images from Butterfly basics in the same green and also tip top taupe.  I added a punched butterfly using the Elegant Butterfly punch for a base layer in watermelon wonder and then stamped and punched out the mini butterfly from the same set with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  I shredded some gold ribbon to make thin strands that I looped under the butterfly and adhered with glue dots.  A finishing heart from the Stampin' Up! Owl Builder punch in gold foil just lifted the whole design.  

A simple thank you sentiment taken from An Open Heart stamp set and I was done.  I also made some brights cards too with watercolour paper which I'll share soon.  

Thank you again to everyone who made my birthday so memorable.
