Mini Spinny Butterflies

I have made this cheery thankyou card for a friend, who has helped us out over this last year with one thing or another, I have used a magnolia image, followed a sketch, coloured in with my promarkers, used a border punch and a sizzlits die for the thanks sentiment. I made up a couple of butterfly charms using some headpins and some tibetan silver butterfly beads. I added a little colour to the butterfly with my promarkers and twisted the headpins to form antennae.

Inside the card I have made a wee window for a butterfly and added another sizzlits diecut sentiment. I have layered up an area to add your words, chalking edges as I went.
I am entering this card into
