Less is More - One layer 'script'

Hi everyone :)
I managed to get out to the craft room for half an hour this morning and I made this card for the Less is More 'script' challenge this week.
I did find it a challenge making this card and I'm not sure I'm happy with the end result....
but it's good to move out of my comfort zone!

 I cut out the circle card and the templates with the Silhouette Cameo.

Hopefully the photo below shows what I used to make it....
I sprayed the back of the circle butterfly template and arranged it on the base card.
Then using a Technique Tuesday script stamp I stamped over it with Color Box pigment ink.
I added the smaller die cut butterfly on top and inked around the edges with a lighter pink ink.
I removed those templates and added the butterfly body template over the top and sponged it with grey ink.
I stamped 'thank you' (Technique Tuesday stamp) in pink ink and added clear adhesive gems as a butterfly trail.


I'd like to say a special thank you to everyone who left a message on my last post - it really meant a lot to me :)
Phoebe has tonsillitis but is a bit perkier this morning!
Thank goodness for the Doctor on call and antibiotics :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today :)
