Hi everyone!  I was inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for my card today.  I adhered a piece of Black Tie Gala patterned paper on my card base and then die cut the stitched rectangle using the Postage Stamp dies from Catherine Pooler.  I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp onto the rectangle and then worked on the butterflies.

I stamped in Midnight ink and then clear embossed them for some shine.  I used some Copics to give them some color.  I love how the top butterfly looks like its trail is the word Thinking.  These butterflies are from Catherine's Happy Butterflies set.  I've had this set for a while now and just inked it up for the first time and I am in love!!
