I think the unique layering on this card really helps to show off the butterfly.
The card uses Not Quite Navy, Kraft and Very Vanilla cardstock with Bella Bleu Designer Series paper. The bottom layering pieces in Kraft are 1" x 3-1/2 and the pieces of designer series paper are 3/4" x 3-1/4′. The butterlfies are made using the Big Shot Beautiful Butterflies die. a Stampin’ Up! exclusive. And they are beautiful!
To finish the card, I used two flat back pearls from the Pretties Kit and stamped "thanks" in Not Quite Navy on Very Vanilla with the Thankful Thinking stamp set on page 173, item #113786, #18.95. The greeting was punched with the Large Oval punch and adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock made with the Scallop Oval punch.
A really fast card to make. It is so versatile because a stamped image or another design could be used in the place of the butterfly to easily change the look.
