Simply Thinking of You Greeting Card

Today's card is a simple monotone card.  I was inspired by the colors of my neighbor's "burning bush" which is becoming very vibrant with call colors.  I know we'll have warm days left, but the colors are beginning here in Minnesota. 

I used two Stampin Up! stamp sets.  One of mine, Trendy Trees, for the sentiment, and one of my friend Norma's, Punch Potpourri.

 The colors are Purely Pomegranate, and Very Vanilla.

 I used a Martha Stewart border punch, and two punches from Stampin Up! for the sentiment. I used Norma's punches for the heart and butterfly as well as her ink pad and her Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. 
I bent the wings of the butterfly and mounted it with glue dots onto the Very Vanilla 5/8" ribbon.

 I added two pearls to the center of the butterfly.

Here is one final look.  Thanks for stopping by!
