A Black and White Thank You

Today's card took some twists and turns; the idea that I started out with morphed into something else totally different.

The same time I bought the blue and cream shelf liner at the 99 cent store, I also bought some black and white shelf liner. Today's card uses that as a background. I also used two Memory Box dies:  Tiffany Frame and Cherise Label. Today I got a new Frantic Stamper die, Monarch Butterfly. It is a really nice size for cards, and I love all the detail. I cut it out of white cardstock and glued and glittered it. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I have the matching Sizzix frames but could not find them, so I just fussy cut it out and pop dotted it to the upper right of the frame. 

Here is the card; the colors did not come out well. The background is actually black and white and not grey and light grey:

I attempted to capture the glitter on the butterfly:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
