H2H (finally)

The whole reason for me wanting to create a blog was so that I could participate in challenges!  I’ve been following for a long time, but have never really figured out how to set up my own blog.  So now that I’ve finally figured it out, I can finally participate in the challenges!  That is a big part of what motivates me to create, besides my beautiful family, of course!  So now that I’ve started my blog, here is my very first challenge post – yay! 

This challenge required using animals or birds on your layout/card.  I love butterflies, and I used a sponge dauber to ink several colors on my butterfly.  I used all CTMH products, with the exception of a border punch on the inside of the card, which is a MS border punch.  I used the Miracle paper pack (again.  This is turning out to be one of my favorite paper packs).  I also used the kraft color ready self-stick borders.  These are great to use even without adding color to them, which is what I did here.  I LOVE bling, so I used the bitty sparkles on the butterfly (from the Delight stamp set) and on the flourishes.  I finished it off with some ribbon from the designer ribbon rounds.

I added a small strip of paper on the inside to finish it off

Thanks for looking today!  Have a great weekend!
