And did I mention the beginning of yet another challenge blog? One with great store prizes? Yep, Simon Says Stamp Store is starting a challenge blog. Check it out! Spread the word for some candy!
Now my card
I used Bazzill cardstock for the base and pebblesinc Easter time patterned paper. The butterfly is cut with a Sizzix die and accented with rhinestones and acrylic stones. I found those acrylic stones in the bead section at Wal-mart. I also embellished the butterfly and yellow square with some faux stitching for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

Well, I've got four on this one! First of all, it started with the Verve sketch with a twist challenge at SCS. This is week one's sketch. I know, week 3 is out, and I'm a bit behind with these. Next, the color scheme was inspired by the inspiration challenge at Three Clovers Designs (go take a look at that gorgeous cake!) High Hopes issued a challenge to use no patterned paper (a tough one for me) and finally, Little Paper Shop Blog has a challenge going on to use stitching. My white faux stitching was also inspired by the cake! So... here's the card.
Paper: BasicGrey Urban Prairie
Tools: Cuttlebug D'vine swirls embossing folder, Big Shot, flower punch
