A Card for Challenges

It's been one of those weekends!  Loaded with chores and left over chores from the holidays.....I'm catching up.  At least the laundry is done  - caught up.

I loved making this card.  For one reason or another this stamp set makes me smile.  I got it FREE as a bonus stamp from Gina K over at StampTV .  Woohoo!  It's one of those compelling stamp sets (at least for me it is).

JUGS66 - Envy of the Envies  (and Gina K is sponsoring this)

I LOVE  this lady's blog.  DO pay Joan a visit, she's loaded with surprises.  

Card information:

Butterfly was stamped with Vivid "Coffee Bean" on Vellum then embossed with Ranger Super Fine Clear EP and colored on reverse with Copic Markers RV21 and RV34.  Then trimmed.
The squares were cut with a Nestabilities Die "Scalloped Squares" and the center was Spellbinders Pendent "Eyelet Pendent".
