Thanks! Friend...

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Monday!
I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!
Before I go on to my post I would like to say to those affected by hurricane Harvey that my prayers & love are with you...
Over the weekend, as I was going through my crafty stash I came across a stencil that a neighbor had given me. I decided to use the stencil and my Colorbox pigment inks to create a colorful background on my card. It was something new and I had so much fun!!
Once my background was completed I then used the stitched rectangles dies from GMD.
I used the Big Word Pop Scalloped Dies from Memory Box on white cardstock. 
I used the Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool to stamp the Thanks! sentiment. 
Then used piece of the colorful scrap and the Friend Word Dies from Paper Smooches.
It is one of my new dies. Once the top layer was completed I used foam tape for dimension and adhered it on to white cardstock. Next, I added a tiny die cut butterfly and adhered it to center of the pretty Totally Lemon Trendy Twine bow from Annie's Paper Boutique.

Here is a closer look at the Friend Word Dies from Paper Smooches.
