Challenge #3

A warm hello to all and sorry that I have been absent for a while as I've been busy which leads to lack of mojo as well. 

Today, I shall begin with a simple "Thank You" card to start off with.  I am combining the challenges from Young Crafters Unite (no coloring allowed) and A Blog Named Hero (use a sentiment other than a sentiment).  The butterfly die cut is stamped with HA Everyday Saying which is heat embossed in white, distressed the edge with mustard seeds and added stickles on the yellow buttons.

Thank you for dropping by and have a nice day!

No mojo is no good :( I hope that passes quickly, Lai-Yoke - and that at least you get to enjoy some nice weather while you're not creating!
I love the bright yellow, and the idea of stamps the sentiment on the butterfly like that - brilliant :)

Hello Lai-Yoke
Brilliant in more ways than one.
Your sunny Yellow Butterfly just pulls you in immediately, then the White embossed Bg is a cool texture, which is softened up by your Yellow twine. A lovely card.
Smiles:)
