Catching Butterflies

Time for a brand new challenge over at Craft Your Passion. For this week, we want to see you use 3 different ribbons on your project. What a fun challenge this was, to create for! I found I had to really get creative to be able to match 3 ribbons together and incorporate them into one card. We can't wait to see how all of you interpret the challenge and make using multiple ribbons work for you. Hop on over there and check out the rest of the wonderful creations from the Design Team, then Get out your inks and markers and play along. You could win digi's of your choice from Lauretta's Digital Stamps and Coco Dingo.

I made an oopsie in creating this card, but nothing I can do about it now. I used sketch TM#40 from Tuesday Morning Sketches , for the card layout, and had planned to enter this card into thier challenge... But then Realized their challenge ended Sunday night, even though new challenges are posted on Tuesdays LOL.

Anyway, this cute image of the girl and butterfly, is from Lauretta's Digital Stamps, and colored with Promarkers. I decided to do this card in purple, because it is my favorite color. All papers and ribbon is from my stash. I used three different ribbons... White with purple flowers, solid purple, and lavender flower shaped ribbon. I used three purple skittles (Hand dyed by me) in the bottom left corner, for embellishing and to add a 3D effect. The spotted purple paper border was made using a MS PATP punch.
