>A Challenge Card


This card fulfills three challenges: the CAS-ual Friday challenge 8 card, which was to do something edgy with your card, The Play Date Cafe challenge 87, which was to use slate blue, barn red and grey on a card, and the current Hero Arts challenge, which is to do a congratulations card.  I started with a slate blue (as close as I had) base, cut folded and scored to a standard base card.  I then had fun, and tore the card to give an edge.   I inked the torn edge in Stormy Sky distress ink.  I used some gingham patterned paper in slate blue and barn red, cut it to length, and taped it to the underside of the card.  I tried to do a different edge again, but it didn’t work.  I rounded the bottom corners.  Using Pumice Stone distress ink, I stamped the butterfly (Hero Arts) twice, once on the base cardstock, and once on the reverse of the gingham paper. I cut out the butterfly from the paper, and foam mounted it to the card.  I tucked just a touch of gingham ribbon in red from the tail of the butterfly.  I stamped “you did it!” (Hero Arts) in Pumice Stone ink. I finished by adding some grey pearls to the butterfly.
