many, many thanks with tons of challenge inspiration

 I had the papers already sitting out on my craft table, when I came across the weekly challenge at Cupcake Inspirations (see below for link).  I JUST KNEW I had to work on this one right away.  I knew I was wanting to finish a Thank You card because so many people were hosting challenges for this, and I really need to replenish my stash.  So off to craft I went.  It took minimal time since I had the idea bouncing around in my head for a few days.

I started with bright orange card stock by Recollections, matted two rectangle pieces of flower print dp using black card stock, cut the center scallop and black matte from Lacy Labels cartridge at 3", inked the swirl with butterflies, leaf, sentiment, butterfly in the center using my Ranger Archival Ink (black), and then finished off by adding glitter, bling and pearls.  The stamps are all from {Ippity} by Unity sets Music of My Heart and Now & Always.  The crocheted flower was included in the packaging from an order I received from Ippity Chick Rona

Here is the finished card....Hope you like it!!!
