Flutter By Wednesday #48 and a PMS Challenge

First up, it's my Flutter By Wednesday card for Danni's Flutter By Challenge.  This week's challenge was to use flowers.  That's pretty easy for me.  I actually don't know what this image is, I got it in a swap.  It's embossed so it was AWESOME to color, I need to emboss more.  But since I never emboss, I should say I should emboss period.  If you want to play along and upload please use keyword FBW.  And please check out the rest of the DT, they are in my sidebar.

This card is also for the Pink Elephant challenge this week.  The challenge was to use pink, brown, and green.  I love this color combo so I combined it in with my card.  Last but not least, this is also using Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketch.  This week's sketch was from 6 year old Jack, Madelynn's brother.  And since their mommy said that Jack loves paper piecing, I went ahead and added that to my card.

Since I used butterflies on this card too, I decided to show it together with my Flutter By card.  This is my card for the Paper Makeup Stamps challenge this week.  The challenge was to use two different types of bling.  I'm not sure you can really see my bling, I'm not happy with this picture.  I covered the paper the quote is on with Gold Glimmer Shimmerz Blingz.  I painted the butterflies with Diamond Stickles and added a rhinestone to the big one.  The rhinestones in the corners have an AB finish so they pick up the light really nicely.  The stamp is Paper Makeup and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
