Thank You Butterflies

Happy Day Crafters. 
I've got a Thank You card to share thats been made using some fun Dies...
I started by cutting 2 Caribbean background die panels, taking one of these die-cuts to fold in half for my base. Then, I added a large yellow Oval die-cut on the inside, as well as another layer of the Caribbean background on top of that Oval (to make card sturdier).  The stamped sentiment if by Studio G. It is backed by the Scandinvian Tag that was also cut in half to shorten ts length.  The Thank You styamp is by Studio G and stamped in Glorious Green Stampin' Up! Ink. I also cut 3 sets of Butterflies and layered for dimension. I added the Silver Pearls and some sparkle using Stickles Glitter.
