Butterfly Tag Thinking of You

I like to make "thinking of you" and "just because" cards for my parents, and I mail them every week or so. My parents don't live near me, and I think they really look forward to these cards!  Here are the supplies I used for this one:  sentiment stamp (The Old Island Stamp Company), swirls stamp (Paper Pleasures), ink (Ancient Page - Chocolate), cardstock (kraft - Stampin' Up!, white - Recollections), DP (pumpkin, waterfall - Memory Star, and cocoa - Carson Dellosa), butterfly and border dies (Spellbinders - Fanciful Flight and Classic Edges One), butterfly punch (EK Success), tag punch (Marvy Uchida), twine and gems (dollar store).

 
 
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
AnnaBelle Stamps AC165 Colour Challenge:  Cocoa, Waterfall, Pumpkin
Crafts and Me Challenges #138 - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday #86 Anything Goes
 
Thanks for looking at my card!  I am so grateful for all you wonderful comments!

  3. Your card is stunning, I can see why your parents look forward to their card! What a fabulous idea, I think I should mail out my parents a card each week they live 21 hours drive away from me(I could probably find one somewhere around here.... )
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at AnnaBelle Stamps!
