Watercolor Thanks

There are some stamp sets that I just keep them on my desk because I use them all the time.  Then there are those that I rarely, if ever, use them and they are tucked away in a box somewhere or I let my kids play with them.  Today I combined both of them...

I have a hard time coming up with designs using individual letters so I'm excited to see all the entries to A Blog Named Hero Spell it Out Challenge.  And I decided I should really play along. I used IO Funtime Large Letters to spell out "thanks." I wanted a large bold word embossed in black in the middle and a watercolor rainbow wash behind it.  I couldn't decide if I wanted the butterflies clear embossed in the background or popped up on top so I did both. Which one do you like better?
