A Challenging Challenge

What do I mean by "A Challenging Challenge"? Well, I had been surfing a few blogs and noticed that a few create their project so that they can enter several challenges with the same project. I hadn't really thought about that since I was just getting into the challenges to get motivated. After thinking about it a few days, I decided to challenge myself to do just that, and began planning in my notebook. After searching through several challenge blogs, I found a few that would work together. This card is the result.

This card is entered at:
Paper Cutz Challenge - a critter
PaperCraft Star - a specific card recipe
Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog - a sketch to follow
Sugar Sweet Paper Treats - specific colors
Jen's Scrap Closet - Butterfly
Stamping Scrapping Challenge - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Fall Collors
Sentimental Sundays - dimension

No Cricut on this card. I used Cream cardstock for the base card which measures 5.5 x 5.5 inches when folded. All inks are Close To My Heart. I used heat embossing for the butterfly. The butterfly and swirl stamps are from Autumn Leaves. Flowers are from Prima, twine is from the craft section of that big box store.

Thanks for looking!
