Pile It On! Challenge - Thankful/Thank You

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Thankful/Thank You'

Our sponsor this month is Sami Stamps:
Prize - 3 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

I used some Tim Holtz butterfly dies ('Detailed Butterflies') to make a simple thank you card. I cut the plain butterfly shape from a snippet of watercolour paper coloured with Autumnal colours of 'smooshed' Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade & Fired Brick) then gave it a coating of sparkle using a Wink of Stella pen. I cut the more detailed butterfly from a snippet of kraft card, then layered it over the top. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Handwritten Borders' set by Simon Says Stamp.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
This was so quick and easy to make, that I made another in a different colourway using more snippets:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
