Favorite 'Somethings' at Twisted Thursday

     It's Thursday and I'm sharing another DT card for Twisted Thursday at The Outlawz.  Our challenge is always an "Anything Goes" theme but we also have an optional twist.  This week, our twist is "Your Favorite...".  It can be anything but when you enter our challenge, you have to tell us what 'favorite' you used.

I used my favorite color (purple) and my favorite butterfly die from Cheery Lynn Designs.


     The daffodil image is from Pattie's Creations (another favorite) and I colored it with ProMarkers, then die cut it with a circle die but left some of the daffodil petals outside the circle.  I did a double cut on the butterfly and layered them together, then added glitter to the body.

     The striped dp came from my hoarded stash of purple papers.  The lace has also been hoarded but seemed appropriate for this card.  The fold of narrow purple ribbon under the butterfly is all but the last of that, again something tucked away in my stash and hoarded for fear of running out of it.  :-D   The tiny flower embellies are punched and I added pearls to the centers, then put glitter on the pearls to complement the sparkle on the butterfly and on the lace.

     Challenges:

     That's it for me today.  I hope you'll come play with us at The Outlawz.  There's a different challenge every day of the week, plus a month long Progressive Challenge with freebie images from a different artist each month.  If you get he first one, and play along, you get the one for hte following month free of charge. The site wide prizes are awarded once a month and many of the individual weekly challenges also have prizes or Top Picks.  It's a wonderful, friendly, helpful group of crafters over there and you'll love the encouragement and warmth you'll find.  If you don't belong, join now.  If you belong but haven't been there for a while, come back and play agian.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

This is beautiful, Connie - and looks a little like your blog, too! :) My daughter's favorite color is purple - her room, bedding, carpet - all purple! It's a fun color and has a great spiritual meaning, too!
I love the design of your card and the butterfly is such a sweet touch - wonderful!
