OCC Thank You Challenge with a Twist!

I have another challenge post! I'm on a roll this weekend! I had sooo much fun making this card! I love making the butterflies with the pearls and Baja Breeze is one of my favorite colors so I ALWAYS enjoy using it!

Our Creative Corner has challenged everyone to a Thank You theme with a twist this week! The twist is to use a blue and cream color palette and add metal and vellum to your creation! Now, I have to tell you I did a little improvising as I ran out of vellum last week and haven't been to the store the get more so... I used tissue paper to cover the butterflies! It looks slightly different but I'm willing to bet if I wouldn't have told ya you would have never noticed!

Without further ado... here is my Thank You card!

Stamps: Butterfly Prints, Afterthoughts
Ink: Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Manchester DSP, Tissue Paper
Accessories: Butterfly Punch, Square Lattice EF, Bronze Brads, String Pearls,
 Victoria Crochet Ribbon, Sticky Tape, Dimensionals
