A Blessing

I needed a quick thank you card for a couple who has given our family a lovely gift so I went with today's color challenge colors at Splitcoaststampers - they're Stampin Up colors, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, and Baja Blue.
I used one of my favorite Sweet and Sassy Stamps sets, Serene Silhouettes and the sentiment is from SNSS's Blessings and Thanks.
I sponged the rectangle while still in the Nestie die with the blue and green and then popped it up on a thin black frame.  The flowers were made with a Martha Stewart punch and I used a small Woodware punch for the butterfly. 
Other Supplies include:
Papermill Shop White Linen cardstock
SU Basic Black cardstock
Ribbon
Pearls
Spellbinders Nestabilities Rectangles
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

I LOVE this! The scene with those bright butterflies is so eye-catching...and then to surround it with black and white...it's wonderful!
