It's Saturday!
Happy Weekend!


I can't think of a better way for Saturdays to begin 
than with a new challenge at
The Challenge! 


This week is a Color Challenge --

September Featured Designer - Sharron Gregory from On Papillon Wings
Weekly Guest Designer -  


My card started out with the background dies --- I spied in a basket of already cut dies and never been used.  The background is three of the same chevron die by Lil' Inkers Designs and layered together.  Oddly enough, I had one in each of this week's colors.  I also used a birthday die from Lil Inker's.  .  The flowers and leaves are from the stamp/die sets, Enchanted Garden, by SugarPea Designs for Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval. The butterfly is from the set, Butterfly Notes by Catherine Pooler.  I colored them all with Copics and Blicks.  I added some diamond Stickles to the flower centers and around the edges of the butterfly for a little sparkle.

Please bear with me a while regarding my photos.  I bought a Foldio a few months back and I'm still trying to get everything right as I also finally got a new camera lens after I dropped mine (ACK!) I also have a very short window (no pun intended) of opportunity for decent natural light in my house, seeing as we have about 18 trees surrounding us.  Of course it wouldn't be NC without it's tall, looming pines and oaks, so I can't complain too much.  But, oh the perfection we crafty people obsess over!  LOL 

For Following Challenges:



Now it's your turn to ink up some paper and play along!  We can't wait to see what this week's challenge inspires you to create!

Challenge Blessings!
