Butterfly Garden

I combined 4 challenges today.  I don't usually get that many challenges in since I like to keep my cards clean & simple.  But I think I got them all in and still kept to my goal.


The layout is from this card made by the SCS Featured Stamper, Carly.  Her gallery name is PaperInBloom.  I love her clean and simple style!  I flipped the card, changed the images and colors and used a butterfly instead of a button.

This also qualifies for the Stamping Up Only challenge to do a card with May Flowers.

And the Friday Mashup is Ribbon or Pearls and All Things Girls.

Finally, I will send this to the Less is More Challenge to do a card with Butterfly/Butterflies.  Yeah, I know I've already done one with this challenge, but I'd like to share this one too.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Strength & Hope, Silhouette Sentiments
Ink:  Perfect Plum, SU Markers (Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake), VersaMark
Paper:  Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Accessories:  Clear EP, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Basic Pearls & Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by. 

Enjoy!

Bonnie
