Floral - With Thanks

Hi, Friends.......

I am here with a card to share for Mrs. A's special celebration of her #100 Butterfly Challenge.  Wow!!  Big thanks and congrats to Mrs. A for all her hard work and lovely inspiration at this immensely enjoyable challenge.  Each fortnight (this time it was 2 fortnights for the big event!) she gives us a fun butterfly wheel of colors and themes to play with.  I managed to include all 7 elements (3 colors, 3 themes, plus butterfly) in my card!!!  Yay!!!

I also was inspired by the current Winnie & Winnie May Color Challenge with the lovely criss-crossed branches and colors.

Here's my take...........

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (stitched rectagle panel and tag)
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (hearts and butterfly)
Sizzix - Thinlits TH Mixed Media die set
Winnie & Walter - Sentimental: Gift stamp set
Versafine ink in Olympic Green
Clear embossing powder
Scraps from my stash

Hope you like my card. Thank you for stopping by!!!

  3. Ooooh - that is really cool :-) I love all the colours and especially like the hexagon bit in the corner where you left some of the 'middles' in.... fabulous card. xx

    1. Oh, yes....those hexagons that I "left in" were the ones that didn't cut all the way through and I couldn't get out! Hahahah. Thank you for your sweet comment.


  4. Great card and good way of using up those snippets of paper. Thanks for sharing with CHN patterned paper challenge.

  5. Thankyou for your sweet words. Well done with playing all of the elements on the butterfly wheel. Your card is so bright sad summery. Hugs Mrs A.

  6. AWK!That little tuna-loving kitty trickster is so darn adorable!! Who would ever be able to resist sneaking her a treat, with such a clever disguise. Your card is so full of beautiful color and I love the hexagons that you left in the corner. Sometimes the projects that don't turn out exactly perfect turn out the best, don't they?

  7. Such a lovely card, love the background. Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra

  8. SO cool! Awesome design... love you mixed mediums... and such a cool way of using up scraps!


THANK YOU so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Your kind words encourage me so very much!!!

Have a lovely day!
