Thankful for You

Good morning everyone,

I am really quite late with my PCD DT card today, as our new challenge started this morning already. I had major problems making this card, I had a great idea in my mind but that never came to fruition unfortunately. The whole card really came into being because of an accident. I was going to print off the lovely Ulysses Butterfly as a whole, but my computer managed to print it too huge to fit on the page twice in a row. At first I wanted to throw the print away and start a third time, but then I thought it might also work with part of the butterfly. And actually, after cutting away all the panels in the butterfly and backing it with glitter paper, I was really quite happy with that element. Problem was, how to proceed and make a complete card out of it. To my mind, it never really came together. You be the judge:

Oh, almost forgot, our theme this week is "Be Thankful", me being thankful that I managed to squeeze out this card after all, even if it is a little late ;)
