Butterfly thanks

It's time for a Just Us Girls sketch challenge hosted by the lovely and talented Alicia. I'm happy to report that Alicia's rodeo fundraiser to benefit Neuroblastoma research was a big success - KUDOS to her for organizing such an amazing event. We're proud of you Alicia!!

Here's the sketch...

I was in the mood for simple simple and I also really wanted to use the butterfly (even though that just represents any shape or embellishment).  I couldn't find an image that I liked to compliment the patterned paper so I left off one element (the rectangle) of the sketch and here's my simple thank you card.
A snippet of ribbon and a few pearls and I was done with my card. Sometimes I forget that simple can be effective too!

Come play along with the JUGS this week. Before you do stop over and welcome our newest Featured Designer for the month,  Lynn Mangan. Then scamper over to the rest of the JUGS team and feast your eyes on some beautiful eye candy then get out yer stuff and come get sketchy with us.

Have a great holiday weekend.
Hugs n Smiles.
