Butterfly Thanks

Hello stampers,
     So last week Mother Nature hit us with hurricane type wind gusts & now she decided we needed a nor'easter to bring us snow since she hadn't given us much this season. Of which I am not complaining about, but a possible foot or more in 48 hours is just a bit much for this CA girl. I'm really hoping the weather guys have it wrong & we only get a few inches, but I have no intention of leaving the house until Wednesday at the earliest. And I really feel sorry for those up in the northeast cuz it looks like it will hit them a bit harder.
     For today's card, we made a card that uses a favorite color combo from my childhood it's just missing a good burgundy color to go with it. Whisper White Card Stock was used as the base of the card, where we used 2 stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set, the thicker splotches were stamped using Smoky Slate Ink, the smaller splotches & the sentiment from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set were stamped with Basic Gray Ink. We then used scraps of Basic Gray & Blushing Bride Card Stock to punch out flowers using the Petite Petals Punch. Blushing Bride Card Stock was then used to die cut the butterfly using Butterfly Thinlets & the Big Shot. Before attaching the butterfly to the card Silver Metallic Thread was put on the card using Mini Glue Dots then using those same dots to attach the butterfly. To finish off the card we placed Basic Rhinestones on the flowers & butterfly.
