Butterfly Birthday Card - Lots of Challenges


I just loved this sketch! Here's the challenges that this card applies to:

1. Prairie Paper & Ink - sketch
2. Daring Carmakers - red, yellow, orange
3. Everybody's Art Challenge - Birthday card (it says Happy Birthday on the inside, but I didn't take a picture)
4. ABC Challenge - S if for summer (butterflies always remind me of summer! Plus, I used the DCWV summer stack for the paper)
5. Crafty creations - how does your garden grow
6. Flutter by Wednesday - butterfly or fairy
7. Lily of the Valley - summer
8. Nutcrafters - summer
9. One stop - sparkle
10. Three clovers - paper piecing (butterfly)
11. Color Dare - blue, yellow, orange, red
12. Pile it on - more than one challenge, 2 ribbons
13. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - 3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 ribbon
14. Creative Insprations - Paper piecing (butterfly)

Whew! That was a TON of challenges!

This card was my first attempt at paper piecing (the butterfly) and I am happy with how it turned out.
