Flutterby Wishes

I have used a newish Papermania set of stamps to make this card.  I didn't want too much on the card to detract from the gorgeous die-cut sheet I was given from a friend which has little shapes like leaves and butterflies cut out of it.  I edged this along with the DCWV backing paper with Tim Holtz's Peeled Paint Distress Ink pad to give it a vintage and distressed look.  The butterfly was coloured in with Promarkers and the antennae were made out of some wire that I have had for years and years.  This card just screams out SUMMER and SUNSHINE.

This card fits the following challenges:

Wee Memories - Butterflies
Paper Sundaes - Metal
Stamping Vacation - Say no to brads or eyelets
Crazy Challenge - Back to nature
Bunny Zoe's - Vintage
Incy Wincy - A bug's life
Tuesday Taggers - Sunshine
Flutter by Wednesday - Open theme
Little Red Wagon - Summer theme
CRAFT - Mini beasts
Cute Card Thursday - Tree-mendous.
