Less is More week 60-recipe

Help too much choice!! This week the LIM theme is  TAKE THREE CHALLENGES. There is a list of all the past challenges at the top of the LIM blog and you can take any three for your card.
58 to choose from help!
In the end I decided to have a rummage in my scraps bag and came up with this. I realised that whatever I created there would be at least 3 challenges that would be covered :)

The main image is a digital sentiment that I cut out and sponged the edges with Stormy Sky DI and painted the butterfly with Marina Mist SU ink. It is mounted onto card embossed with an SU EF and mounted onto blue card. The other butterflies are painted, moulded and popped up with silicone glue. All the pieces came from my scrap bag.

The challenges I used are:
1. Week 10-Sentiment only
2. Week 15-Embossing
3. Week 16-Butterflies
4. Week 56-Don't scrap it
     Thanks for dropping by, your comments are much appreciated:)

Hi Valerie, Super card today, you've coloured those butterflies beautifully and I love the simplicity:0) You're so right about the smell of air dried laundry, the ironing's something else though!! LOL Hugs Gay xxx
