Butterfly Kisses...

Hi folks!
Well I'm back from my hols and I finished unpacking my craft goodies that I took with me. Thought it high time I checked out what was happening in blog land and made a multi-challenge card. My new Whiff of Joy stamps arrived yesterday... just had to ink up this beauty. I followed the sketch from Sketch and Stash. The Saturday Challenge was for fancy corners. Charisma cardz gave us a colour challenge of Lemon, Green and Pink which were the three colours I chose for the Papertake Weekly Challenge (dated 21/7/09.... they are celebrating their 100th challenge and you can choose any of the previous challenges) I thought these colours were summery enough to also enter my card to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. Lastly, The Pink Elephant also has the theme of Summer this week.
The papers I have used are by Provo Craft. The fancy corners are a Cuttlebug die. The flowers are layered Woodare punches and the leaves are a mixture of Woodware and Martha Stewart punches. The centres of the flowers are glittered dots The tiny butterflies are also Quickutz. I used my Fiskars border punch on the vertical panel and the yellow and pink strips are Doodlebug borders. The character has been coloured with Copic Markers and carefully cut out. I have to admit this character was quite a challenge to cut but I stuck with it. The chipboard sentiment is from my HUGE K&Co embellishment box... (don't faint) I think I've used 2 bits from that box now ;o)
Ciao for now

Fabulous work also well done on that gorgeous card that was in a mag I bought recently. I only bought it cause I really liked the card on the front of the little extra mag - then discovered it was one of yours. Great card.
