Red, White, and Black Challenge Card

Hi Everyone,
Hope you enjoyed the Bella Blog Hop. If you haven't checked it out go to Denise's blog and hop along. Lots of lovely cards have been made for Bella.

Now, for my new post. Boy, two in one day. I am really going to town! This is another challenge card. And, again, I challenged myself to incorporate as many elements as possible. I started off with the sketch #56 from 2 Sketches For You . I choose the color scheme from the Crazy 4 Challenge blog which is Red, White, and Black. I took the theme from Critter Challenge blog which is Thank You. And Flutterby Wednesday Challenge and My time to Craft challenge , Stamping Vacation which are all to use a butterfly.

There are lots of details to this card. I added a stamped flower with two layers; one CS and one acetate qualifying the card for the Cupcake Craft Challenge. I added lots of layers of DP - Paper Sundaes Challenge blog. And I used two different punches -Marks Finest Papers.blog. Here is a detail photo.

List of Materials:

Stamps: Simple Friendship Set from Stampin' Up, Sentiment from Framed Flowers set by Gina K Designs

Ink: Fired Brick from Ranger, Tuxedo Black from Memento

CS: DCWV textured Rust


Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug


Punches: Eyelet Edge Punch from SU, Circle from Marvy

Whew. Okay. I guess I should go do something else now. I have been on the computer long enough. LOL . Too hot to do anything outside. I guess I could clean. Hope you are having a great day.
