Butterflies Are FREE!!

Hi All,
Gee, do you think that I am thinking of Spring? I so want to see some real flowers and butterflies.
But alas, these are just some that I made for my card for Joan's next Challenge, From Joan's Gardens, a wonderful place to make some purchases, get some inspiration, and make new friends!!! Come check it out! OH and of course her weekly challenges with some wonderful prizes.

Here is my next creation, first here are the guidelines,
Challenge #3:

■Create a 4.25" x 5 1/2" birthday card
■Colors to use are Pink, green and some purple
■Include some distressed edges
■Add piercing

And of course we love to mention Selma's sample cards which give us so much inspiration, and today's is just gorgeous as usual, and that can be found here at Selma's Stamping Corner, her talents are endless.

I am just going to list my supplies, if any one has any questions, please just feel free to ask.

And my dear folks that completes this weeks creation, well one of this weeks, hope to make a few more.

I have also decided to enter this card for a challenge over at, Mark's finest Papers and Stamps site, they have a challenge going on there, and it is for cards made with more than 4 layers, which this one is, so hey nothing ventured nothing gained they say, and I do enjoy this site, so I might as well try.
