Saturday Brings More Challenges!!


Good morning everyone...hope you are having a great Saturday!!! I have to work a few hours today but wanted to upload this first...the bright colors will make me happy all day!!! This is for the Moxie Fab World's Citrus Celebration Challenge....my green isn't really lime but this is as close as I could get...oh well...two out of the three colors isn't too bad...LOL!!!! It's also for the Inspiration challenge on Splitcoast...Stef picked an awesome site called Ruche and I found inspiration from this fabulous top.
The sentiment and butterfly are from Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free set...the butterfly was colored with copics, the leaves were cutout of the Prism Intense Mint cardstock with a Stampin Up! die, and the felt flower and the rick rack were cutout with a MFT's Die-namics, and the Maya Road chipboard was first colored with white acrylic paint and them colored with a So Saffron marker. The Candy Dot for the flower center and sewing around the background edge are the finishing touches.

Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free
Paper: White, Prism Intense Mint, Stampin Up dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Felt, SU leaf Die, Die-namics rack rack die and flower die, Maya Road chipboard frame, Candy Dot, Sewing Machine, Corner Rounder punch
This is for a few other challenges:
1. 2 Sisters Challenge Blog - make you own embellishments (I made the flower and the leaves)
3. Raise the Bar - be inspired by a country (I was inspired by the tropics)
4. Sew Many Cards Challenge - Spring fling
5. Stamp Something - Spring
Have a great Saturday, everyone!!!
