Black & White Butterfly Thanks

~~~  If you are looking for my Crafty Island Reveal, Click Here  ~~~

Another Thanks card to share today.  I needed a few thank you cards for some very special ladies.  Happy to be back crafting again.  still some craft room unpacking to do but I really needed these cards plus I really need to be creative AFTER ALL THESE MONTHS OF NONE!!!  On to my card.....

I wanted to make a simple Black and white card so this is what I came up with.  I used my new Spellbinders Diagonal Chevron die for the white card front layered onto a black A4 card base scored at the top.  I stamped Thanks (HOTP 1192 Dancing Wildflowers Stamp set) with silver pearl embossing powder.  I added a black shimmery sequin to each corner dotted with a Silver pearl in the center of each.  The large Black Exotic Butterfly is also from Spellbinders and backed with white vellum angel wings.  I added one black sequin and several dots of silver pearl down the body of the butterfly.

for the inside I used my newest favorite  stitched mat die from Simon says Stamp - Bundle of stitched shapes for the white layer.  I then ran it through my Sizzix Scroll Frame Embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment stamp A Great Big Thanks  (HOTP Thank You! Stamp set) in Memento  Tuxedo Black ink.  I added a small exotic butterfly with dots of silver pearl down the body.  plus 2 more black sequins dotted with silver pearl. 

I am entering into these fun challenges:

Wow! I really like what you've done here! I thought it was genius of you to combine all of those fantastic graphic lines and angles with the elegant butterfly. And I love how the butterfly has that white background. Also wonderful is the INSIDE of the card! It is always a treat to see the inside of a card looking as good as the outside! Thanks for the clever take on our butterfly challenge and for sharing your work with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
