In the Limelight...

is this card!!! (that's one of the perks of doing the Limelight challenges - it's a great segue!)

Onto the nitty gritty....
  • Obviously, there's a Limelight challenge going on here. In this particular case, they provided the sketch and also requested you use rhinestones. (All those little dots on the card are rhinestones - might need to see if I can get a better photo!)
  • 2 Red Bananas asked for 3 different patterned papers - there are actually four here.
  • CCEE Stampers asked for flowers
  • Creative Inspirations asked for four different patterned papers - which there are.
  • Paper Blooms asked for three flowers
  • A Spoon Full of Sugar asked for a butterfly.
  • Flutterby Wednesday this week said - butterfly and sketch - any sketch
  • Daring Cardmakers gave me my color combo of orange, red and yellow.
  • The SCS current Ways To Use It challenge is crinkled cardstock. Now I have been making these flowers since I saw the Prima lollipops come out, so I knew this challenge would be great for me!
  • And somebody out there asked for hand made flowers, but I can't remember who - as soon as I do, I will edit! LOL These were created by punching circles (all were punched from the two sizes of Creative Memories circle punches), wet, crumpled and put together - the brad actually holds them together.
And that sure is plenty enough for this one little card to handle!!! I have also completed today's 365 Challenge of Grass Inspiration - however, it's out in the shed, so the post will just have to wait until tomorrow! (actually, later today.....)
