Thank you card for Tammy from my DH!

My DH wanted to send a "thank you" card to Tammy for making the card that he gave me for my birthday and, of course, he asked me to make it...LOL

Here is what I came up with.  The patterned panel was made by me using Hero Arts "Large Flower Background" stamp.  I stamped it on a piece of water color paper using VersaMark and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder   Then I colored the flowers and leaves using Copics.  I used a piece of white heavy weight cardstock and I die cut each side using one of my Spellbinders dies and then cut another piece in green to layer beneath it.  I gold embossed a gold strip of cardstock to adhere to each side of the patterned panel.  I used "ripe persimmon" and "crushed olive" Distress Inks to color the butterfly.  I designed the "Thank You & mat" and added  the "Dragonfly" which I gold embossed .  The finishing touch is the "faux" lady bug!

Here is a close-up photo.

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look.  I would love to hear your comments on this design!!!
