One Card Six Challenges

Well happy Thursday everyone. I've been so busy getting my house cleaned up, and working on my sons grade 8 graduation, that I didn't even realize it had been so long since I posted. My apologies. The weather was lovely so I gave the house a good spring clean. You know one of those ones that you even do the inside of cabinets and china buffets. UGH, Well a quick look at my lonely blog this morning and decided to get off the rest period and make a card. This is what I came up with.
For my card I used my Easter fence stamp from Magnolia, and one of my cute little girls from the winter kit, (I think). I colored them with my copics to match this fabulous paper from October Afternoon/Thrift Shop Line. I used tons of punches for this card, all Martha Stewart punches. I used 2 butterfly ones, a flower boarder one and a large lace like one that I have wanted so bad. The final MS punch I used was to make the little flowers which I put pearls from the dollar store in the middle. Oh yeah, I used another one to make the greenery. A lot of punches. The 2 buttons are from Papertrey.

My card was originally made for the Magnolia-licious sketch drawn by the ever talented Claudia Rosa shown here:

I also made my card fit the following other challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Cutie Pie (cards with tons of Cuteness)
Oh Alice - Flowers ( Use flowers on your card)
Crazy 4 Challenges (1 Ribbon, 2 Buttons, 3 Punches)
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Make a Scene
and finally
Flutter By Wednesday - Open (Must have butterfly or angel)

This is my first time entering in this challenge, but my friend Christine enters all the time and really loves this challenge, so I checked it out and it looks really cool. Here is my first attempt at Flutter By Wednesday.

Hugs xx
