Butterfly and Stripes

HOORAY,  I finally got a card done before this week was totally over.  It is after midnight here at my house so I am going to get right to it.  I have had some Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) papers that coordinate and I have wanted to use them for quite sometime. So here is the result!

Here are the supplies I used:
  •  Cricut Cartridges: Florals Embellished; Damask Decor
  • DCWV for patterned paper, kraft cardstock
  • Gold ribbon by Ribbon Trends
  • VersaMagic Ink in Jumbo Java
  • 2 baby buttons, 3 JoLee's rhinestones
  • Round punch
I made this card for the following challenges:
  1. Try It On Tuesday - monochrome card
  2. Tuesday Throwdown #65 - use 3 patterned papers, 2 buttons, 1 ribbon
  3. Just 4 Fun - timeless vintage
  4. Flutterby Wednesday - Open
Thanks for taking a peek and always leaving such encouraging comments!  Oh I am trying to get to 100 FOLLOWERS by Christmas so spread the word!!! Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
