Spring Thank You

(First of all, the grey shadow at the left is not a part of the card!)
This design is a bit out of the ordinary for me - I seldom cut more than a bit that might go over the edge of a Nestie, for example.  Here I kept cutting a little more - until most of the top half is cut out.  The image is Country Garden, by High Hopes.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up Circle of Friendship.  However, I did not want to display the center words (over and over again) as that did not fit the occasion - so I inked it in and put on a tiny butterfly.  The ribbon, embossing folder, stamp and teal cs have been in my stash for at least a year.  On the other hand, the DP and sentiment are new to me.  I also used Prismas I have had for a few years.  The Mojo sketch has been modified a bit - I seem to have left off a layer behind the image  I like the texture created with embossing folders and die cuts - there are so many possibilities, and the look (and feel) is easy to create.
