Less is More week 86-recipe

Oh dear tooooo much choice!! This week over at LIM TOWERS Chrissie and Mandi's theme is to Take 3 Challenges. This means we can look back to all 86 challenges and take any  3 and make a card. As I said too much choice so I decided to just make a birthday card for a friend knowing that it would be bound to cover the criteria, and so it did! Come and see:)

 I used the Tied together Couture EF to make a panel and I punched a strip for the edge with an Anna Griffin punch. The butterflies are a WOW build a butterfly stamp set stamped in SU Baja Breeze and with glitter added. the sentiment is also WOW and I added glitter to the edge of the punched strip and to the centres of the crosses on the EF.
So I covered:
Week 43 Bit of Bling
Week 15 Embossing
Week 16 Butterflies

Thanks for taking the time to visit, I love to read your comments:)
