Thank you

I wanted to make a clean and simple 'thank you' card for someone who (like me) likes purple.  I decided on my layout, and needed a wide ribbon.  But the ribbon I wanted to use was so sheer that the white butterflies on it didn't show up very well.   So I cut two strips of the ribbon, layered one on top of the other, and then lined up the layers so that the butterflies were in the same place on each layer.  Then I folded both layers around the card panel, sticking them on the back with tape.  The doubled-up ribbon made the purple appear darker, and therefore the white butterflies stood out more clearly.

I've also been trying to use my new Grungy Messages stamp set that I got from my visit to Leeds before Easter.  I've stamped a couple out, but each time I try them for size on a card, they seem too big, so I've had to leave them off.  This card has finally given me the opportunity to use one by making it centre stage.

This project is perfect to support the 'Monochrome' challenge at Top Tip Tuesday which starts today.
