A beautiful thinking of you card that features a butterfly embellishment

I started this card with the butterfly!  It is a plastic magnet with beautiful colour and detail. Love it!!  I cut off the magnet and it made the perfect embellishment for this card.  The orange background is two triangles of scrap stamped cardstock which I adhered together using handmade faux washi tape and it was the perfect colour to coordinate with the butterfly!!  I added this yellow cardstock paperclip which I die cut a while back and has been sitting in my stash.  It was the perfect colour as well.  I glued the back of the paper clip to the orange layer then adhered my butterfly with two little strips of 3D foam tape which gives it great dimension!!  I dug through my serendipity stash and found this decorative paper which worked nicely so I trimmed off a piece and adhered it to my brown card front after I had embossed the right hand edge.  I added my butterfly focal element over that and finished off my card with a layered punchie greeting.    Worked out so well and I love the deep rich colours!!         Therese
