I made this card using the following three challenges:

1. SKETCH CHALLENGE #357 from Splitcoaststampers
2. WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE #347 from Splitcoaststampers. To use newsprint on our card.
3. PALS PAPER ARTS #118 CHALLENGE which was a color challenge. Soft Suede, River Rock and Early Expresso.

I forgot how much I love the color River Rock. I used it as my card base, then added some Well Worn DSP from SU that matched the colors perfectly. I added the newsprint as the small layer of butterfly.

I left off a sentiment and will add it later...this will probably be an anniversary card.

I also used some retired SU Hodgepodge hardware for my ribbon accent and the Butterfly center.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: none
Paper: River Rock, Early Expresso, Textured Soft Suede, Newspaper, Well Worn DSP
Ink: River Rock, Early Expresso, Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Beautiful Butterflies Die, Early Expresso Quilted Ribbon, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware(retired), Dimensionals, Sponges

Thanks for looking today!
