Can you guess what this week's TLC challenge is?? :-) When Joan told me what the challenge was, she specifically said NO PATTERNED PAPER. So I took that literally and I didn't use any patterned paper on this card, even though I was hyperventilating. LOL
This is all cardstock, and I had a blast picking a color scheme that I would not ordinarily use. I stamped the Large Polka Dot backgrounder (from Cornish Heritage Farms) onto kraft cs, the chocolate cs has been embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, the teeny little light blue piece is punched with a Dotted Scallop Edge punch, and my stamped butterfly has tons of dots in the pattern. I colored in the butterfly with some Copic markers to match my cardstocks.
The inspiration for the layout is from one of Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges (#167). I've had this sketch sitting on my table for a couple weeks now, so it was high time to put it to use. :-)

Goodness, you really put some thought into this! It turned out beautifully. Love the butterfly.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
