A Note of Thanks

Good morning! I have a card to share. I used this sketch for my card which I think has unlimited possibilities!
Here is where you can find the sketch: http://ispysketches.blogspot.com/2012/07/issc24-shari-carroll.html
 This is what I created with the I Spy Sketch:
 I decided on four colors one being neutral which is the gray. I first started with hexagons but didn't like how it was going and switched to circles. I embossed each circle with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I first tried a white background but the colors of the circles just didn't seem to stand out like I wanted them to so switched it to black and that seemed to make the colors pop.
 I added the sentiment which is from Papertrey Ink "Happy Trails" towards the bottom third of the card.
 
The five butterfly shapes are a Martha Stewart punch punched out from white cardstock then added teeny tiny black gemstones  for their bodies.
I only had enough black gemstones for four butterflies so I decided to use gray gemstones on two of the butterflies. I used foam squares to pop up the butterflies for an bit of dimension on an otherwise  one layered card.
Thanks for dropping by my blog and have a wonderful day!
