MIM: One Layer Card

We had another snow day today and teachers actually got to stay home. We usually have to go in since we are contracted a certain number of days but today was too bad for even us to go to work. Tomorrow, we go to work but we won't have students. I love those days now because I can get papers graded and plan ahead. Anyway, to today's card. First of all, the challenge was issued today and I'm actually posting the card today. I have a hard time with one layer cards but the MIM video that Erin made really had some great tips. I ended up making a simple "hello" card. I did an inlay of one of the butterfly dies from Beautiful Butterflies and combined that with the chevron border, Spot Dots and a "hello" sentiment. The texture on my card came from three places: the die inlay, the glittered chevron border, and the clear embossing on the sentiment. Thanks for looking!
Here's a close up of the three examples of texture. I guess it's actually four because I did put a bit of twine in the center of the dot on the butterfly too. You can click on the picture to see it larger also because it's hard to see the embossing.

So pretty- I'm a fan of inlaid diecuts, but I've never used a butterfly. I've got to do that; it's gorgeous!
