Handwritten sentiment

The Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is 'Butterflies + H is for Handwritten and/or the colour Lemon'.  The lemon bit is fine, but handwritten?! I've never handwritten anything on my cards before, apart from a bit of Zentangling, so this was a first for me.  I decided to make a 'thank you' card as I'll be needing a few after Christmas.  I wrote the sentiment with a green fineliner pen.
I started by die cutting a 6" x 4" card blank down the side with a Memory Box 'Kensington Border'  die.   I used the die again with snippets of lemon coloured card and cut off the butterflies before attaching them over the main card.  The embossing folder I used is Couture Creations 'Fireflies'.  I added a thin strip of lemon card on the edge of the green embossed card.  The matted, handwritten sentiment is attached with foam pads.
