SC77, CC7 & FMS130


DSCF1955-001
Happy Thursday, everyone!  A three-challenge card today! 
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Butterfly Collage Stampin
I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch from Linda:
The inspiration photo from Stampin’ Celebration 77:
And the butterfly challenge from the Card Concept 7, where I used the "Shabby Chic" style:
DSCF1955
I used several different images from Pink Paislee, SU’s Nature Walk, and 100 Proof Press, stamping them collage-style on a Naturals Ivory panel and matting it with a So Saffron panel trimmed in Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I stamped the butterfly again in Stazon Black and watercolored it with So Saffron ink, then mounted it on a vellum scalloped circle that had been pierced in a circle:

Since this card is going to someone who is going through a very difficult time, I added my favorite CHF verse to the inside:
