Zebra Butterfly Card

Zebra Butterfly Card
How about a card that fits five challenge sites? The Cupcake Craft Challenge is to use lace. Paper Sundaes has a metal challenge while it is anything goes at Sentimental Sunday. There is a photo challenge called "Reflections" at Shabby Tea Room. And last but not least, I used the sketch over at Card Patterns. I got to play with my new eClips today and cut the zebra butterfly using it. I also used a zebra pattern embossing folder by Sizzix. The zebra patterned paper is by Diecuts With A View. The rubber stamp sentiment is by Hampton Art. The brad and lace are by The Paper Studio. I had such a good day. After going for a mammogram this morning, I stopped to check out a store called "Dirt Cheap." I found some great bargains (more like steals). :) I got two new desks/tables for my craft studio for $34 (for both of them mind you). I also got a Thomasville TV stand for my youngest daughter's room for $60 (is at Target for $249.99). I also got two great wire shelving units for my attic (to store my ever growing craft supplies). :) I'm almost dancing as I type about it. Isn't it fun to save money? (Wink, wink.)
