WOO HOO.....FINALLY A NEW POST FOR CHALLENGES

Happy Monday Everyone!
I'm so excited to be back and share this adorable new image by Elisabeth Bell named Fresh and Fun, just in time for spring..  She is available for purchase at Whimsy Stamps along with 3 of the other new Cottage Girls.  FF is colored with Copics and Spica pens were used for the flower centers.  The sky is done with Color Box Ice Blue Fluid Chalk using a template from Bev Rochester, and flower soft added to the base of the grass.  Teal card stock from Bazzill and Orange from CM, with DP from the Maricopa pack by .DCWV.  Butterfly punches by MS adorned with Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

Peek at inside of card
This card was created for the following challenges:
Bells 'n Whistles - Butterflies
Flutter By Wednesday - Anything Goes (with wings)
The Pixie Cottage - Easter or Spring
Whimsy Stamps - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Bingo (lace, glitter, punches)
Elphine House - Rain or Shine

Whoa, can you believe I'm playing in this many challenges at once...........LOL  Think it's my first for this many and probably my last.  Don't seem to be able to get much posting done lately so I'm taking advantage of having the opportunity to play in so many wonderful challenges.  Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again.  
"Love & Hugs"  Carol (Granny)
