Fun challenge combo, Holly! I like choices!! Especially since I'm pretty well snowed in for probably the next few days. Can you believe it? We had over 8" of snow since last night!! No way up or down the big hill we live on. With the Christmas Day snow we had and now this, we've had about 4 times the amount of snow we usually get in an entire year in just the last couple of weeks. (I live about 50 miles NE of Atlanta.)
Anyway, here's my card combining, CC302 (red, white, black), TLC280 (make flower using non flower punches or dies), SC216. All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the butterfly a bunch of times on red and white c/s using red and black inks. After using the butterfly die to cut them out, I snipped the butterflies in half and created a flower w/ them. They're arranged on a couple of big Spellbinders circles and a few small punched flower thingies were added as a center.
A single black butterfly was stamped w/ white and die cut, then I used a white Prismapencil and some of the iridescent w/c medium on it and the flower. The sentiment was stamped w/ black and shadowed w/ a red marker.
The bg is the butterfly corner stamped once in red and once in black. The finished card measures 5 x 5.
Thanks so much for looking! I'll have the closeups on my blog in just a few. The Write Stuff

Have mercy! This is amazing!! I would have never thought to use butterfly wings for flower petals... you smart girl, you! I snickered a little when I read about your snow. Here in Colorado where that kind of snow is daily, we've only gotten about 8" total all winter! It's quite cold, though, but we're use to it :). Stamp away my friend... especially since you make such gorgeous eye candy!
