Act of Kindness

Good morning everybody!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day - do you realize that Christmas is only two months away?  Wow, how time flies when you're busy coloring!!  Today it's my turn to post a card on the Sundays with Crissy blog and the theme for October is Thanks or Thanksgiving.  Since the Canadian Thanksgiving was celebrated a couple of weeks ago, I decided to make a Thank You card using the digital image "Rose Butterfly" available here at Whimsy Stamps.

The image was colored with Copics, cut with Spellbinders Label 15 leaving the wings on the right outside of the die.  The orange dp is from Bo Bunnys Forever Fall 6 x 6 paper pad, and the sheet music is from Authentiques Glowing collection.  I distressed the edges of the dp's and inked all the elements with brown.  The ribbon is seam binding that was inked, wrapped with jute, and I attached a heart charm from my stash.  The sentiments are from a Flourishes stamp set. 
Head on over to Sundays with Crissy, check out the other design team members beautiful creations and enter the challenge to win 5 digital images.
