The QFTD challenge today on Splitcoaststampers today is to honor Lois aka Clownmom. I chose to case this card of hers: I stamped my flower garden in SU Always Artichoke. If the green looks grayish, it is because when I tweaked my card the SU Melon Mambo was really brightened and in your face so I left it a bit subdued. I used a piercerabilitie die on the bottom and sponged with the Melon Mambo after piercing. Added the tiny pearls to my sponged butterflies and did some sponging between panels.
I am entering my card into these challenges:
