Sending Smiles Across the Miles

I made this card to send to Dee for the May Card Chain Challenge.  I chose the Colour Option (Peach, Terracotta & Pineapple), the Theme Option (Friendship) and the Product Option (Embossing Powder).

I used the two largest rectangle dies to cut a frame from a snippet of terracotta textured card.  I trimmed a snippet of peach paper so it was slightly smaller than the frame and then placed it into my MISTI.  I stamped the sentiment in the top corner of the paper using brown ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The paper was attached to the back of the frame and then onto the centre of the card. I stamped the butterfly with brown ink onto a snippet of white card and embossed it with clear embossing powder before cutting it with the coordinating die. I coloured the butterfly wings with a yellow Promarker and the body with a peach Promarker.  I attached the butterfly to the card along its body so I could shape the wings.  To finish I attached three small clear shimmering dots below the sentiment.


To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" tent fold white matt card blank
     Card Making Magic 'The Best of Cardmaking Magic' butterfly stamp & coordinating die
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics' dies
     Practical Publishing 'Slimline Spring Florals' sentiment stamp
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Cosmic Shimmer Clear Detail Embossing Powder
     Promarkers ' Yellow & Soft Peach
     Papermania transparent shimmering dots
     Snippets of white matt card, terracotta textured card and Lili of the Valley 'Bear Necessities' peach paper

I am entering the following challenge:
      Snippets Playground - Challenge 429

This is the lovely card I received from Marga -
