Paper Playtime challenge #57

2nd Post for today!
I was going to save this for tomorrow, but I need to get the project posted today! I am at the dead line! This challenge is with Paper Playtime and the requirements are:

CH#57 - make a Cricut Creation using
Challenge ends Saturday, Oct. 15th @ NOON Alaska Time

I am going to be going to a Bridal shower in a couple of weeks so I decided to make an easel card for her in these colors, using the oldie-goldie "Walk in My Garden" Cricut cartridge. I had this, also old, Creative Memories paper that is orange with the purple print that was perfect! I used purple card stock for the base. Black, orange and purple card stock for the butterfly. Black ribbon flowers by Offray -- I painted the centers orange and glittered them. A black velvet ribbon with a sheer orange ribbon on top. Black doodles and purple and orange jewels on the wings. I pop-dotted it on top. On the inside, I used a butterfly charm and 2 purple jewels as the stopper. The words "for you and love" were in the WIMG cart and I had to stamp the word "with". Fairly quick and easy card to make, and I got to use an old cart!! I thought it would be fun to make something 'not Halloween':-)

Thanks for visiting and tell me if you think she is going to appreciate my hand made card??
