QFTD58 and challenges-CAS

The QFTD58 on Splitcoaststampers is Anne aka jdmommy. I was Queen last week and now I have to hand the crown over. I wanted to honor Anne by case-ing this beautiful, bird card. I love her image but didn't have it so I used a butterfly silhouette stamp from A Muse Artstamps called Flutterby Flock. I added a sentiment, punched a border from a Martha Stewart flower patch punch, and added a couple of red rhinestones. Red is Anne's favorite color.

Other challenges I'm entering:
Flutterby Wednesday #153 - Use a butterfly, fairy, or angel
Claudia and  Co.   challenge #81-butterflies
Papertake Weekly Challenge-Anything Goes

Recipe:
Stamps: A Muse Artstamps-Flutterby flock, Mark's Finest Papers-Our Family Tree
Paper: PTI cardstock-stamper's select white, true black, and red poppy
Ink: StazOn jet black
Accessories: Martha Stewart flower patch punch, red gemstones

This is sooooo perfect for Anne since she loves red so much! I love the alternating size of those pretty silhouette butterflies, and of course that punched border is as cute as a button! I'd say this is definitely fit for a queen :)

This is gorgeous and one of my favorite color combination. White and black are dynamite, but when you add red, you have Oo La La!! Love the border punch and the sweet butterflies. Great card.
