Gratitude - Just Us Girls Challenge

I'm sharing a card that I made for the current challenge at Just Us Girls - JUGS176.  It's a color challenge this time...and these colors are so pretty.

This is the first of 3 thank you cards that I created this weekend.  I love the look of banners on cards, you can go in so many directions with them.  This is what I created.

These colors make me think *spring*, and I'm so ready for it.  Yes, I know it's only mid-February.  But we're getting closer!
I used a little stamping on one of the banners, an impression plate on another.  Then one is made of lace and another is a piece of grosgrain ribbon.  I just had to add a couple of flat back pearls to my bitty butterfly.  Then 2 brads from MME.  Along the left edge I layered card stock, ribbon and ric-rac.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in!

Card stock: kraft (PTI), cameo coral (SU)
Stamps: beautiful butterflies, BB: Inspiration (PTI)
Ink: basic gray, calypso coral, certainly celery (SU), smokey gray versafine (Tsukineko)
Dies/punches/imp plates: book print impression plate (PTI), bitty butterfly punch (SU), corner rounder (Photo Max), scallop border punch (SU)
Fibers: kraft saddle stitch ribbon (PTI), white ric-rac, certainly celery grosgrain ribbon (SU), white doily trim (The Paper Studio), silver thread (RRR)
Other: flat back pearls (Recollections)
