Patriotic Thank You

This is my final challenge for Gina K's release!!! This challenge was to make an ATC (artist trading card), I have not made one of these in ages!!! I started out with a different idea until the postman delivered my package!!! I ordered the Eclectic Summer Stamp TV set, yea!!!! Is it ever fun!!! I decided to use the beautiful butterfly and make it patriotic!! I stamped the butterfly in Versamark and emobssed it with Blue Glass embossing powder, and just for my friend Lee, I used red glitter on the inside and then cut the butterfly out! I stamped the Thank You and cut out with a Cuttlebug die and attached it with a silver brad included in the kit!!! Lots of fun stuff in the kit, 2 stamp sets (one is images the other is sentiments), ribbon, brads, and Gina K paper in red white and blue!! I ran the white portion through my Cuttlebug using my Distressed Strips embossing folder to keep with the patriotic theme!!!
I think that is all for me today and I may be a little scarce this week, I am working more than my normal 2 days but I have at least 3 challenges I want to participate in this week so we will see how that goes!!!
