Fabulous Friends Challenge

Happy Thursday!
Today I have some SU! cards to share with you all!
Last Saturday my two Dirty Dozen buddies and I decided to set aside one of the projects from the SU! Regional and see what we could do with it at home. We were allowed to ADD to it but we had to use the supplies given....I hope I got that right....lol
This is a picture I snapped of the worksheet that was given with it.
I can't wait to see what Christine and Laura have each done with their cards!
Now here is my stepped up version! I didn't change it all that much but did add a couple of extra layers and more of those microbeads for the flower centers. I even watercoloured my image...and YES Laura...I used the ink from the inside of the lid...go ahead...gasp! haha!
Stamps: Soft Summer; Cardstock: Confetti Cream, Ruby Red, Old Olive,WC paper and Haiku dp; Inks: Black Stazon, Old Olive, More Mustard, Ruby Red; Accessories: Aqua painter, Choc Ribbon, Crystal Effects, Microbeads
Here's a close up of the front:
Yesterday's SCS Sketch Challenge was one with MANY layers....can you see me smiling??? LOL!
The Parisian Breeze Specialty DP is beautiful and it was screaming at me to use it once again! I LOVE cutting the butterflies out with it...it's so sturdy for them!
Stamps: Simple Friendship; Cardstock: Choc chip, Baja breeze, WW and Parisian Breeze Specialty DP; Inks: Choc chip; Accessories: SU! Beautiful Butterfly Die, 5/16" Brads, Button Bouquet, Linen Thread, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey, Silke and I made that first card at the Orlando Regionals. LOVE that set...it's so fun to color, isn't it?! Beautifully done, girl.

The butterfly card.....breathtaking! You're making me totally want to buy that butterfly die because I'm LOVVVVVVVVVIN' it in the Parisian Breeze. Wow Wow WOW!! Hmmmm, yep, I have an order I'm playing with in Order Entry Express..I think I may need to add it. Would it work with a cuttlebug?
