Less is More 57...Neutrals

I feel horrible missing a Less is More challenge, but I DID last this week, I am "on it" early, so the end of the week "stuff" doesn't keep me from it!!  This week's challenge at Less is More is Neutrals, and this is what I came up with last night:
 I made this with a Memory Box die and a sentiment from Craft Lounge.  I die cut the "thanks" and put Stampin Up design paper behind it(the paper is black and gray striped).  Added 3 square rhinestones.
I used another 2 piece Memory Box die with piece of Indian made paper(feels like handmade paper...purchased at Joann's).  The paper is black and white, but as I put it on the card, it looked kind of gray,(it's thin and kind of see through) so when I layered the gray card behind the white panel...I liked the way it looked with the butterfly.  The butterfly's body is a separate piece and I die cut out of black.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings and the card is textured with a Papertrey Ink texture plate.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
