Thank You

Thank you so much everyone for all the love and good wishes.........it feels great to be back to blogging...
This is the first time I tried some serious distressing and I absolutely love the result......I used water color paper to make the tag on the card, lots of distressing, some masking, stamping and heat embossing......I managed to burn some of the left edge of the tag while heat embossing so had to hide behind the butterfly :P The butterflies are stamped and colored with copics, the spots on the bigger butterfly have been colored with a versamaker and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, here's a closer look.
I even made a matching envelope, here's a picture of the inside of the card along with the envelope.

Thanks for visiting!
