Hello There Crafty Friends,
I want to let you know about the challenge at...
The theme is always 'Anything Goes'

The wonderful sponsor is 'Little Blue Button Stamps'

...I had fun making a card with the beautiful 'Sweet Geisha Charlie'...
 ...For my card...
I colored the image with colored pencils.
Cut out the image with a frame die.
Embossed a piece of grey cardstock then used a die to cut out a flower pattern.
Went around the paper with a distressing tool.
Then put distress ink around the image, card, vines and on the embossed paper.
Used a paper crimper on a piece of red cardstock and taped it behind the grey.
Taped the papers together and taped the image onto the card. 
Added some red ink to the flower petals. Glued the vines and flower on.
Then glued on the small butterflies and added the butterfly sticker.
