Thank You

I made this card for the current Butterfly Challenge 'C is for Checkered and/or Cyan'.  I am also entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'Thank You' challenge and as the paper and card are from my snippets drawer I'm heading over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Dies: Cheery Lynn 'Thank You', Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly', Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Other: Self adhesive shimmer dots
Snippets: Cyan (or as near as I could find to cyan) and white matt card, Lili of the Valley 'Promises' paper

I trimmed a piece of checkered paper, layered it onto cyan card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut and embossed a white circle and then die cut 'Thank You' in the centre.  I attached double sided tape across the back and then inlaid a cyan 'Thank You'.  This was attached to a scalloped die cut, embossed circle and attached to the card front.  I die cut a mini butterfly and attached it to the lower section of the circle. To finish I attached shimmer dots to the top and bottom corners.
