This one's for you!

First of all, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration today!  We (my folks and us) are having dinner at our place.  We will be thanking God for all His wonderful blessings.

Heather, an angel, has a sketch challenge occasionally and I decided to give it a try.  I have to admit I'm not wild about this card.  The ink pad I used on the butterfly (Pumpkin Spice VersaMagic) is drying out and I didn't get as good an image as I wanted.  I used Penelope SWIC paper and matching cardstock along with Noir PH ink for the text and paper edges.

I also used Landscape PH ink, Happily Grateful and Sophisticated Sentiments (hostess level B) stamp sets.

Here's a closeup of the butterfly.  You can't see the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the antenna but the butterfly is raised up with foam mounting tape.  I may add some pencil to the butterfly to give a bit more color..
