I made this card yesterday with 5 challenges in mind - see which ones at the end of the post. I used K&Co backing paper, my own digi stamp Rosie coloured with Promarkers, Prima flowers, recycled petticoat lace (had just enough left over from another project), a fancy button from who knows where and a sentiment from Woodware. The butterflies are peel-offs - something I very rarely use but these ones are really pretty mounted on acetate with little half pearls added for the heads.
The challenges I'm entering it for are-
Charisma Cardz - butterflies
Kaboodle Doodles - Happy Birthday
Cute Card Thursday - Celebrations
Spoonful of Sugar - use something recycled
I also intended to enter it into the Lala Land challenge but hadn't taken note of the fact that I had to use one of their own images so I've disqualified myself from that one :(

Made a new card today for the Stamp Something challenge whose challenge this week is Something Girly. I used my Sally digi stamp and coloured her up in girly pink with my Promarkers. I cut a circle with my nestabilities and tried a new technique I saw the other day which involved using a Stampin Up border punch to cut a long strip (about 12'5") which I then snipped at intervals to make it fit around my circle to create a border. You will find a tutorial for this over here on the Simon Says Stamp blog. I then decorated the card with ribbon, a fabric flower, a pin, buttons, dewdrops and diamontes. My backing paper is from Papermania.
Also entering the challenges below:
Saturday Spotlight - Friendship
Paperplay - Just Because
Papertake Weekly - Buttons, bows, brads & bling (might actually be too late for this one!)
