Use It! Challenge Card

OK, so an online friend, Rae Barthel, has recently started a challenge blog called Use It! Challenges. I didn't end up playing the first week, but when I saw her card this morning and she said that today was the last day, I knew I wanted to try something for this challenge today!

The challenge for this week was from last week's winner - Danni. The challenge was to use spring colours, 4 flowers and a tag of some kind. OK, so first of all, these are so not my colours, so I had to go through my stash a bit looking for paper from last Easter when I did some cards with this gorgeous Imaginesce line and then the rest was bits that were honestly just on my table! The labels were done with the Noteworthy MM Slice card and the tag on this is actually the butterfly hence the slightly bigger hole on the top of the wing on the one side. I know you can't see it in the picture, but I outlined the butterfly and the holes on the wings with my Spica pen too for a little added bling!

This is a little different than the kinds of cards I usually do, but I love the result! Thanks for the challenge ladies!

Cheers,
