Blackberry Shimmer Damask Thank You

Shimmery wonderfulness!!! Seriously - the a muse studio shimmer papers are DIVINE!!! They are a little "spendy" but if you compare them to buying a $5 card for a special occasion, they're not "spendy" at all.
This is a super simple and yet beautiful card with a soft shimmer. It features the blackberry damask and the butterfly die. The butterflies are cut from the opposite side of the blackberry damask cardstock. It's shimmery too!!! I paired the shimmer with the regular blackberry cardstock and it goes wonderfully together. The butterflies are just glued in the center so they look like they just landed on the card.The shimmer paper is layered on a sugar card base. It helps stretch the use of the more expensive paper.
Inside is a simple Thank You from Avian Notes in blackberry ink. Isn't the font pretty? A clean and simple card to let someone know you care about their kindness. What do you think?  

I'm heading to a crop this week-end so plan to stamp up a storm. Maybe I'll get my Christmas cards made. I'm only 3 years behind. And, yes, I know it's ironic for a cardmaker to not get her own cards out. I'm usually filling other orders and don't get my own projects done. That's a good problem to have, right?! :)

Have a wonderfully creative day!
