A Different Card for Me

This was a very different card for me to make. I incorporated several challenges into one card and came up with a card that is not my usual look but I'm pretty happy with it.

Flutterby Challenge: use ribbon and buttons and include a butterfly
Creative Belli Blog: use something with texture
ABC Challenge: V is for vellum
Cute Card Thursday: Thank you card

I found this image thanks to my friend Jeanette. She referred her readers to a site called Art Freebies and I found it there. I sanded the edges and matted it with brown cardstock that had also been sanded to give them both a vintage look. I cut the window card using my Cricut and stamped thank you in the window. I used vellum on the inside of the card to cover the window. The ribbon accross the top is velvety so that was the texture I used. I used a butterfly stamp that I received from my friend Margaret to stamp little butterflies along the corners and placed a button in the bottom right corner.
