ABC Challenge time!

Oh, hello! :)  Guess what?!  It is Monday and that means it is time for another ABC Challenge!!  Also, guess what again?!!  The challenge is.........ANYTHING GOES!!!!   So, any card that you are working on qualifies!!  Here is my Anything Goes challenge card for this week:

I textured my background, but decided to leave my circle and squares clean and simple.  They did get a little bit of sponging though around the edges to dingy them up a bit!  I like the contrast that doing that offers.  Gives your eyes lots to look at and your brain more to think about!

I heat embossed the butterflies with a pewter color and then colored them with sponge daubers.  There is just something so darn cool about watching that powder transform onto the paper!  I added a white ribbon and a fun little knot to the bottom.

Stamps: Oh, Hello!
Paper: Midnight Muse and Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse, Pretty in Pink, Summer Starfruit and Old Olive
Punches and Dies: Postage Stamp, 1 3/8" Circle, Square Lattice EF
Extras: Pewter Embossing powder, Whisper White Stitched ribbon, sponges and sponge daubers

Ok, now it is your turn!!  I know you happen to be working on a card right now!!  Or that there is a great idea circling around your brain just waiting to make contact with paper!!!  Come play with us over at ABC Challenges!!  While you are there you can check out the work of the very talented Design Team too!!  Cannot wait to see what you come up with! :)

Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
