Sending You Sincere, Heartfelt Thanks

Here's a simple card I love that I forgot to post. It's using the Hero Arts butterfly design for the Silhouette. It's the last time I'll use toothpicks behind this butterfly...I promise! See my other toothpick cards here and here.

I cut the butterfly from the a sheet of digi paper from Cheery Glen by Misty Cato (Sweet Shoppe Designs). To give it some shine, I used VersaMark ink on the entire butterfly and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Sorry, you can't see the shine in my photos. I also used the same ink and embossing powder on the "Sending You" part of the sentiment.

Speaking of Sweet Shoppe Designs, I stepped down from the Hybrid Babes Design Team. I didn't have enough time to devote to the SSD community. I'll continue doing hybrid projects. Thanks, Jen, for the awesome inspiration to even try doing hybrid cards!
