Butterfly! C4C and More!

Happy Saturday!  It is time for another challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges C4C139. Since it is a brand new month we have a brand new challenge host.  This month is Silke Kittmann.  Silke has started off her month of challenges with a nice easy challenge.  All you have to do is add some butterflies on your creation.

For my card I am using Verve's Viva La Verve Week 1 Sketch for June.  Great sketch, Amber!   I have a long standing relationship with torturing sketches.  If you look closely and sort of tilt your head to the side a bit, you may be able to see the  actual sketch.  Good Luck with that.  I try people!  I seriously try!  The sketch elves come in and just reek havoc I tell you.  

I combined some Verve sets and dies for the card.  I am using Verve's   Beautiful You (quote), Bloom & Grow, Sunny Days, and Hope Blooms for the flowers and stem.  I used the Love Notes set for the Classy Frame die image.  I used the Chick Rules set for the Flutterby butterfly image.  I used the Rounded Scallop Frame, Floral Circles, Elegant Leaves, Classy Label, and Flutterby Verve Cut Above dies.  

I either clear embossed solid images or white embossed outlined images for the butterflies, flowers, and stems.  I die cut, distressed, and layered the flowers.  I finished with a few buttons, bows,and gem accented butterflies.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
