Challenge Saturday....?

Hi all!  Well I thought I would try to squeeze in one more creation for the week, it's been pretty hectic.. I think it must have been due to the after affects of the Super Moon last Saturday night, it was a wacko week here for sure, LOL.  Anyway, I thought I would try something  a bit different this time, for me anyways, and try to combine at least 3 Challenges and get them posted before time runs out for each of the them.. I am just making it under the wire for two of the three...Whew! 8-)

I Chose Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #110,  to use a  Masking technique, The Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #183 and last but certainly not least, The Color Throwdown's Challenge #134.  Whew!  Believe it or not, that was quite an accomplishment for me, first time combining challenges, took me a couple of days to sort it all out..LOL  But it was a lot of fun and the outcome was definitely worth it, to say the least. 8-)

I stamped my image using Flourishes Gerber Daisy's stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black onto some Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  See the cute little Butterfly?  Well I stamped him first and created a mask for him, and then stamped my Gerber daisy Bouquet over him, removed the mask and Voila, there is my cute little butterfly taking time to smell the flowers LOL...  I colored up my fun little bouquet with my trusty Copics using a couple of the Collections grouped by Flourishes and added a touch of glitter glue to my butterfly's wings.  I put a nice little embossed edge on my Image panel and BG panel with my Score Pal and matted them up with some adorable digi DP from Kate Teague featured at Two Peas in a Bucket.  My Impression Obsession sentiment was stamped with Pealed Paint Distress ink onto my layered eyelet circle that I created with my Eyelet Circles Nesties set and then popped it up with some dimensionals.  And that's pretty much it, I used my MS Traditional Scallops border punch for the bottom panel and added some ribbon form Michaels and put it all together, and there you have it, my very first combined challenge card! 8-)

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend & Thanks so much for stopping by!
