one card for. . . .

two challenges: 

sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and an open challenge at Flutterby Wednesday's.  Here is the sketch:



And, here is my card:



I loved the sketch when I saw it and I wanted to use two butterfly dies from Memory Box - Darla and Vivienne. They look so pretty when combined.  The lattice background stamp from Hero Arts is a gorgeous one, isn't it?  And, I've been seeing lots of polka dots lately - just sayin'!  (Yay!)  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.

Have a wonderful weekend!
