love to Embellish on a Sunday afternoon

Hey there!  Are you guys enjoying your weekend?  Hope so.  I found some time to create a card for the Embellish challenge this afternoon.  You guys know how I love the challenges..the down side with the busy work and life schedule is that I don't get to play in these sketch and color challenges as frequently as I used to!  Anyhow, I'm glad I got to play today - it was good ol' relaxing creative therapy for me!  Here's what the Embellish challenge colors and theme are:
The colors I used are: SU!'s Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Peach Parfait, and Very Vanilla.  Now, as for the cute and quirky aspect of the challenge, I went with the fun trimmings from the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die (sneak peek from the Holiday Mini).  I just think they're so cute.  My sweet little "merci" sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  Wanna see my full card?  Here you go:
Here's the recipe for you:
{Butterfly Trim Merci}
*Stamps: Merci {Lawn Fawn}
*Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Peach Parfait
*Inks: Early Espresso
*Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Polka dots emobossing folder, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, Beautiful Butterflies, Subtles buttons, twine, white gel pen
Thanks for visiting :)  Bye for now!
