Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am hosting the challenge this time over at
Digistamps 4 Joy!
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes with a Twist - I chose 'Add a Butterfly' 
My beautiful daughter loved butterflies, so any time I see one, it brings a smile to my face and makes me feel her presence. I miss her so very much each and every day.
Here is my inspiration card for the challenge...
  Here's what I used to make my card...
Digistamp 'Sweetheart Sally' By: Digistamps4Joy
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
 The Paper Studio 4.5'x6.5" 'So-So-Sweet' 
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
Unbranded Vine/Leaf/Butterfly/Fence Dies
Paper Roses - From My Friend
Zots Glue Dots
Yellow Cardstock Paper

Here's what I did to make it...
I made the card with yellow paper. Next I cut the patterned paper to fit and used the distressing tool around it. Then I taped it onto the center of the card. I cut a piece of the same yellow paper to frame behind the image and used the distressing tool around it and the image as well. After rotating the yellow paper toward the right, I taped the image to it, then taped it onto the left side of the card. Next I cut a couple glue dots in small pieces and added them to the back of the fence die cut, then placed it on the right side of the image. Then I glued pieces of the leaves and vines on the fence, over the image and coming from behind the image. I then glued roses onto the vines and fence and glued the butterfly on the vine above the fence. 

That's my DT card, I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.
Happy Crafty Hugs,
Sherry x
