Trio of Thanks...

It's Friday and my little family had such a nice day. The heat has let up a bit here in the Big Apple, thank goodness! I decided it would be a great day to make a thank you card for my fab-u mom-in-law, Susan, for all her enthusiastic support of my recent design team news. She's the one who got me started, so I thought a cute card of thanks was due!
For today's card, I found myself lucky it's Friday, as Taylor has another wonderful sketch to play with. Amazing, too, considering she's been out of internet service for the whole week! When I saw the sketch, it got me thinking of a folding panel card.
It's actually a rather simple card, as I had some cute designer paper to work with in my ever growing stash. I first trimmed all the paper (the finished card is 4" x 9") and used a scallop circle punch on each. I stamped the pretty butterfly image twice and outlined with some liquid pearls, also framing the highly appropriate sentiment.
