Give Thanks Designers Choice Challenge

Another challenge I was keen to enter over at The House That Stamps Built is 
Anything That Gives Thanks

Since we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia I couldn't pass up this challenge to make a Thank You card. There are always so many friends/family that we could thank for all sorts of reasons. So I put hands to paper and came up with this little design. Sure hope you like it.

I used the following items on this card.

Cream shimmery card stock topped with mottled beige paper which was embossed from Sizzix Holiday Trees. I used Spellbinders Labels 20  for one of the contrasting colours and lightly inked the edges. The green paper is also shimmery card stock cut out with Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 and embossed with a butterfly folder and popped. Sentiment is from SU. Cut out 2 butterflies and popped them also. 
Added pearls and ribbon to finish it off.
