Triple Challenge Card!

Happy Wednesday!!

I finally completed the latest Friday Mashup challenge...literally linking up my card before I typed up the description!  2 minutes to spare...adrenaline rush!  LOL   Not only is the card for the Mashup, but it also uses the palette from the ColourQ challenge, which was extended a week (WooHoo!)  Finally, I used the sketch challenge posted today on SCS.  I adapted it a bit, maybe too much.  Oh well.  I am grateful that there are no challenge police!

My card base is strawberry slush, and the layer of whisper white is dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, then sponged with coastal cabana.  3 of my horizontal strips are from the SU brights pattern paper stack, in daffodil delight and tangerine tango.  The other 2 strips are my own dp, made with various stamps in the "Flight of the Butterfly" stamp set.

I made this wonderful butterfly using coastal cabana and the SU Butterflies thinlit die, which had been sitting in my drawer for 2 months.  I was a bit nervous about it.  Lots of little pieces to pop out, but I as able to do it easily with my finger or my piercing tool.  The lace is from a friend who sews a lot.  It was white, but I sponged it lightly.  Finally, the sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" punched out with the word window.

This card is headed to one of my great-nieces.  She turns 14 next week...hard to believe.

Thanks for stopping by again.

  1. Hi Kim, what a lovely card! The embossed background and strips of Designer Paper really make your butterfly and sponged lace "pop". I'm sure your grand-niece will love it. Thanks so much for joining the Friday Mashup Challenge this week.

  2. What a gorgeous card, Kim! I love your delicate butterfly over your washi strips! A great spring design!

  3. Beautiful card, Kim! Great way to make your own background on some of those strips!

    Glad to have you joining us at The Friday Mashup!

  4. Very pretty - the strips of DSP look great behind that lovely butterfly! Thanks for playing along with the ColourQ!
