Butterflies - thinking of you

I have a few friends going through some difficult times.  I hope these "thinking of you" cards perk them up a little.  Here is another clean and simple card.  I was happy to use my ticket corner punch. This is one of those tools that I've had for ages, but hardly ever use - don't know why.  Anyway, I love the way it looks when its layered.  Sadly I don't think Stampin Up sells it anymore, but most likely you can find it at a local craft store.

This stamp set of the butterflies is from the Kindness Matters stamp set from Stampin Up.  The butterflies were originally one stamp with the butterflies side by side of each other.  I decided to cut them apart so they are three separate stamps.  For this card I placed all three on one large acrylic block and stamped them all at once.  I then just used my colored pencils to color them in.
I originally wanted the sentiment to be on the card base, but I accidentally stamped the sentiment wrong, so I had to layer a better stamped sentiment over it.  To finish it off, I just added twine and a button and some hand stitched lines.
