Just a Note

Made a simple card for Flourishes challenge to use a Flourishes silhouette image. I don't have any silhouette stamps, per se, but I thought the solid butterfly from Fanciful Flourishes might qualify.  The Distress Inks I used are peacock feathers, shaded lilac & dusty concord.  The background stamp is Penny Black's music background & the sentiment is from Flourishes Taglines.  I had never used my Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle & I do like it.  The layers are all popped up for dimension, but I didn't capture that in the photo.   Thanks for all your thoughts & kind words.  I appreciate it so much.  Enjoy your weekend & if you have time come back on Sunday to see my card for the DeNami Thoughtful Thank Yous blog hop.
I've also entered Our Creative Corner's challenge to make your own background, since Sue pointed out this would qualify.
