Hey! Not going to be the cheeriest of days for me since I have a memorial service to attend. I know that these are never a good thing for anyone. :-(
This card was made  using Fancy Pants papers.  I am digging the vintage appeal of it .  I trimmed a die-cut paper piece and  matted on the vanilla cream cardstock.  The red piece is a die cut label that is kinda hard to see now with all the embellishments.  I added a American Crafts chipboard butterfly and then a punched a small butterfly from a Martha Stewart punch for the top.  I pulled out a past favorite punch for the decorative border on the Bazzill pink.  The stamped sentiment is from Unity and I used Stampin' Up's Old Olive ink pad.  I accented with some buttons, flowers, lace, and a rhinestone. 
The weekly challenge at Charisma Cardz is to use die-cuts.  You should see what  others created for the challenge!  Lots of inspiration.  Plus there's 2 prizes to be won! 

I used Kazan's 2S4Y sketch.

The Shabby Tea Room challenge is a gorgeous picture with floral, roses, pinks, fuchsias and I based my card off this. 

The Cupcake Craft Challenge is 2 papers, 2 ribbons, and 2 flowers.  I used 2 pieces of pattern paper and cardstock, 2 ribbons/lace, 2 flowers, 2 buttons, 2 butterflies.  I got a little 2 crazy.  :-) 

If the Shoe Fits...Scrap It! challenge  is die-cuts.

Thanks for stopping by!
