Thinking of You

This is a fairly quick card to put together and the best part is that I made it out of scraps.   My card base is 4 1/2 x 11, scored at 5 1/2.  The light blue cardstock is cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and the newsprint is 3 3/4 x 5, the newsprint is stamped with the Doily Background stamp.  I punched two pieces of off white cardstock with the Lace Ribbon Punch and inked the edges with vintage photo.

I used the oval Designer frame and embossed the green cardstock then tore around the edges, stamped the butterfly with the melon mambo and placed it in the center of the oval.  Thinking of you is stamped on more off white cardstock stock and mounted onto tan cardstock.  After I had my placement down I threaded a piece of embroidery floss through the Lace Ribbon and tied a button onto it.

Thanks so much for stopping by looking at my card.  Don't forget to enter the challenge and stop back to see Tina's start of the new theme Easter.
