Hero Arts 90 Minute Scramble

I have to say that this time it was a scramble with a lot of head scratching!  Thank you to Lucille for hosting the challenge - we were to use patterned paper and something on the card had to be off the edge!  I know it sounds easy right, but the off the edge just made me nervous.  However, I did manage to make this:

Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper (Lawn Fawn); Neenah
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic markers; Poppy Chalk ink (HA)
Stamps: Hero Arts (H5426 - Artists Butterfly; CL497); PTI (Basic Frames)
Other: Stickles; Dimensional foam

Not much to say.  I used some beautiful papers from Lawn Fawn, I love that Chevron patterned paper, it's not easy to see here, but the chevrons actually go from light to dark grey.  The butterfly is coloured in with Copics, I added some diamond stickles to the green spots, and I have popped the front wings up off the notecard.

I am going to add this card to the current Simon Says Stamp challenge, "Anything Goes".

Thank you for visiting.  One more day to go and take part in my Giveaway Post a few posts back, HERE.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
