Thinking of you - earthy butterflies


I wasn't sure where I would end up as I started this card, little by little it came together, all but the base card is done with scraps!
Entering this in the following challenges:
Layout from Creat4Fun challenge http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_ckKLovVoJYs/S9KMbtarUgI/AAAAAAAABbY/RoRMVoh3QBc/s1600/383749174.jpg
Color theme of black burnt orange and creme from Colour Create
Stitching at Crafty Catz
Earth challenge - (earth colors and I recycled by use the black polka dot card stock - which actually came in the mail from a company selling something and the butterflies are a paper bag) at DCRU
Masking challenge at Frosted Designs. I often will save my negative cuts - just do I can mask a back ground or tag. Great way to save scraps too!

Items used on card - Cuttlebug swiss dot folder on the black and orange strips
Martha Stewart border punch on the top accent piece
Stampin' Up butterfly punch which I ran through the CB swirls embossing folder
