A Whole Bunch of Challenges and SU Great Friend

Hey Friends! It was a good crafting day yesterday! I am so proud of myself! . . .why? Well, I made 3 cards and participated in 4 different challenges. With this card. . .I actually created it for the SCS Ways to Use It Challenge - LSC228 Crop It, Flutter by Wednesday Challenge and Friday Sketchers Challenge but I didn't read the SCS challenge correctly so this card is only for 2 challenges: Flutter by Wednesday and Friday Sketchers.

With the SCS challenge. . .there was a limit in the type of embellishments you can use which were suppose to be only brads or eyelets but I had used buttons for my embellishments. You know. . .t helps to read the challenge. LOL!

The other part of the challenge was to crop you images and create 3 or more of them on your card. I had cut the butterflies from the SU Great Friend stamp set.
The dots on the center of the butterflies were created with my Scribbles Iridescent Paint.

Card Details:

Stamps: SU Great Friend
Paper: SU Summer Parisian, SU So Saffron, Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery
Ink: SU Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Scribbles Iridescent PaintAccessories: SU 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punch, SU Scallop Circle Punch, Round Corner Punch, Buttons, SU 1/4 So Saffron Ribbon

My second card is for the SCS Ways To Use It Challenge - LSC228 Crop it and SCS Sketch Challenge - SC235. Okay, I did this card correctly the second time around! LOL! I'm also submitting this card for the Our Creative Corner Challenge - Red, White, and Blue.

I again used the same SU Stamp Set "Great Friend". Wow, that's a lot of circles! LOL! Yeah. . .the sketch was to create all those circles.

It was fun creating this card. I never made a card with this layout before so it was nice to do something different.

Again, I added Scribbles Iridescent Paint to create the dots on the center of the butterflies.

I really don't have much to say as far as personal commentary. It's actual midnight right now so my brain is mush right now! LOL

Here is the SCS Sketch that I used.

Hope ya'll have a wonderful Saturday
