SU LateNightStampers Challenge/Wood

Hello all and welcome to another challenge for our LateNightStampers Group.  This week's challenge is wood.  You can create a card, scrapbook page, project, or anything else you can think of that uses wood. Remember we have wood sheets and cork sheets as well as the wood stamp and embossing folder.  So there are many ways to add wood or the look of wood to your project.

Now I have a lady that is in my Sunday School class at church and her son is giving her a surprise birthday part for her 70th.  In the invitation he said she loved butterflies.  So when I saw this beautiful wood butterfly while I was out shopping, I knew I had to get it and make a card using it.  And now that it is done, I am so excited I did.  Here is the card!

I wanted to make the card a monotone card as to match the butterfly, so I used crumb cake and very vanilla card stock.  Since the butterfly was a cut out and I did not like seeing the embossing part behind it, I laid the butterfly on a piece of crumb cake and cut it out so that would be in the background of the butterfly.  I liked it much better after I did that.  I sponged the embossed background with crumb cake ink to soften it up some and then added the crumb cake ribbon.  It was a pretty quick card and I think it turned out delightful.  I sure hope Joyce likes it.

Here is a side view of the card!

And, yes I did the inside for her also and added a scripture!
