SOA Challenge & More ...

Have you been over to the SOA website yet??? It only costs you the minimum of $5.00 to join (see blinkie on my sidebar) and the proceeds go for such a wonderful cause. You have until Sunday the 31st to enter the challenges for some great fun and awesome prizes!!!

This card covers several challenges. First the sketch is for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design Sketch Challenge. The butterfly qualifies it for the Any Winged Thing challenge as well as the Flutter By Wednesday #59 challenge over on Danni's Dreams blog.
My card is A-6 in size in order to property accommodate this over sized butterfly by Inkadinkado! The base card is SU Whisper White, background panel is from the DCWV Garden Party 12x12 paper pack and the other 3 panels are SU Porcelain Prints designer paper. The butterfly was actually stamped using Versafine Black onto a scrap piece of designer paper I had laying on my workstation. I can't even tell you who the maker is ... sorry!! My sentiment is by Impression Obsession and was also stamped with Versafine Black and embossed with detail clear embossing powder. I've used my swivel craft knife to cut out the butterfly and dimension tape to "pop it up". The only embellishments on this card are three Making Memories black brads. To obtain the "layer look" without the bulk, I have used a Creative Memories round tip black marker and went around all the panel edges.
Hope you enjoyed this posting. Please take the time & effort to check out this wonderful site. After the 31st, it will be gone ... please do your part to help cure this ugly disease!! Thanks for stopping by & Happy Stamping!!
For those of you who are wondering how things went at Cleveland Clinic yesterday ... I am happy to tell you it was ALL GOOD NEWS!!! The doctors were very happy with Mark's recovery so far and his tests all came back normal. His blood numbers are steadily increasing and although it will take a few more months before he really starts feeling like himself again, he's doing great!! Thanks to all for your prayers and support!!
