Unwrapped Tilda Thank You Card

Happy Tuesday going on Wednesday, Everyone!  Hope your week is coming along fine.  I'm so behind in my social obligations (thank-you's etc.) and it's just a vicious cycle for me right now.  I try to tackle one thing and something else comes up.  C'est La Vie!  Enough ramblings and on to my card.
I won Joy's birthday blog candy last month and have been working on this card on and off as time permitted. Joy,  A Place To Be Me, loves the color purple and for some reason, DPs in purple is the hardest to find!  Go figure!  So this is what I ended up with:
My card base is 5.5" square and I used Bazzill in a deep purple.  There was no ID on the DP so I don't know who makes it.  I used Unwrapped Tilda from the Winter collection and I find that this image can be used for so many occasions where a gift is concerned.  It reminded me of when I received a box full of wonderful goodies! You can purchase alot of the Magnolia stamps here.  If you don't see what you want, it may be out of stock so just email Diana and let her know what you are looking for.  The sentiment is computer generated and I punched it out with my SU! word window punch and distressed the edges with Memento Lulu Lavender.  The butterfly is punched three times: the base in Bazzill, the DP, and SU! vellum CS then embossed with my Cuttlebug Love Language embossing folder. Here's the recipe for the rest of the card without boring you with all the details.
Recipe:
Copics:  Dress and socks: BV04 02 01 00; Box: E71 70; Hair: E25 99 YR24; Shadow: C2
Punches:  Punch Bunch fern and leaf; SU! Butterfly and Word Window
Other:  Cuttlebug antique corners; Love Language embossing folder
Thank you for stopping by today and until the next time...happy crafting!

Gorgeous creation with beautiful coloring. The 3D butterfly is so cute. You are right about this winter collection Tilda. She sure is useful for all occasions rather than just for X'mas theme. Great card for Sharing :o)
