Believing Butterflies Card

Believing Butterflies Card
It's been awhile since I took the time to do a card challenge. I only did one card this week (Gasp!...staying outside too much. Wink.) and it fits three challenge sites. First, Cupcake Craft Challenge's was to use orange, yellow, green and white on your card. City Crafter Challenge was to use paint and recyled cardboard. And last but not least the Paper Play Challenge was a "Summer Citrus Splash" (use oranges, yellows and greens). The paper colors were done with paint chips. I stamped the leopard backgrounds and butterflies with black ink and then rubbed acrylic paint over them with my fingers. I used a big Sizzix tag die to cut the cardboard. The stamps are by Unity Stamp Company, the flowers are by Prima Marketing and the ribbons are from Michael's. I'm in a terrible dilema. I miss my card making but "nature" is calling me outside. :) Flowers, birds, pool, reading outside are a powerful deterrent. Wink. :) Hope you have a great weekend planned. Having a nice quiet one at home....after an exciting one last week. (We went to Memphis and saw Steve Martin "live." Had tickets on the THIRD row. Woo Hoo!)
