Good Wednesday afternoon. I made a card for three challenges.

First, I played in today's Ways To Use it TWINE challenge on SCS. I tied my twine with my ribbon onto my button and I stitched my flutterby's path with it.

Second, I am bringing flowers and my flutterby to Mothermark's 110 Teapot Tuesday Teaparty. I popped up part of my flutterby and one of the flowers.

Third, I finally was able to play in PriscillaStyles Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. I've been meaning to for awhile now and I finally did it. I looked at the simple sketch and came up with a sun shining its rays and had to tilt my panel to look right. Just for this challenge. Thanks Phyllis for inviting me.

I also finally am using this cute digi BUTTER ON TALL STEM from PINK CAT STUDIO.

Stamps: Butterfly On Tall Stem Digi (Pink Cat Studio)
Paper: Cottonball white, October Afternoon Fly a Kite Series (all from Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink: Printer, Bic Mark-It Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Accessories: Paper Piercer, Mouse Pad, Needle, DMC floss, Large button, Ribbon, Tim Holtz Blending Tool, Dimensionals, Tar Jute String (from Clear Dollar Stamps), Mini Brad (Recollections)

Hi Lisa, love your card the stitching on the background is awesome, wish I could sew, I'm useless! I love the big button too, it's all great!
Thank you for your lovely comments, you mentioned the transparent BG on my blog, well it's really easy I used the blogger design and in the option labelled 'advanced' I chose transparent. I suggest you have a play, if I can do it(technically challenged) I guess anyone can! good luck:) xx
