Textured Background

A quick 'Thank You' note!
I had the butterfly already colored (with colored pencils) and just waiting to be made the center of attention!
I textured the background with a Sizzix embossing folder ( TH Gridlock), tore the edge and added a bit of aqua ink and Stickles "Star Dust"...just for interest and depth. Then I stamped the simple "Thanks" (Stampin' Up) on a scrap of yellow cs, tore the edge....put it all together with 3M adhesive tape...all done!

The Stickles really sparkles alot more than it shows in the pictures...quite pretty!
And the butterfly is part of a set called "Tab Basics 1" by (who really is Cindy Echtinaw...the one who designed the new Spellbinders tool called "Tool N' One"...clever gal!)
