Making Memories Crafting - Challenge #1 - Anything Goes

Happy Friday, my friends!

Welcome to the very first Challenge at Making Memories Crafting.
WOOHOO!! :o)

Our challenges will run monthly, and begin the first Friday of each month. 
This month we are having an "Anything Goes" challenge.
I hope to see you all come and play along.

We have two wonderful sponsors for January:

In celebration of a brand new year I wanted to create something fun and fresh.
I did this using the lovely Silhouette - Butterfly Flowers image from Bugaboo.
You can find it right HERE.

I began by printing the image on the cheerful green cardstock.
I then made the card base from black cardstock.
I ran the front through the embossing folder,
and then cut the circle out.

Finally, I added a pretty double bow.

Here's the inside of the card.
I added a punched label to write a greeting on.

Materials Used:
Paper: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Bugaboo Stamps - Silhouette - Butterfly Flowers;
Punch: Stampin' Up - Decorative Label;
Embossing: Tim Holtz Texture Fade - Checkerboard;
Ribbon: Offray Satin.

Please head on over to Making Memories Crafting and join us in the fun!
Then remember to come back each month for a new challenge! :o)
