Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge

Good Morning Stampers! Thanks for stopping by!
Today's card covers two challenges, one I've played along with before and a new one I came across while blog surfing! You know how much I like these challenges so I'm pretty happy to have found another one to play with!

The first challenge is from the divas over at the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog

The second challenge is from the Color Throw Down blog, number 38 for them and uses Basic Gray, Ruby Red and Baja Breeze this week.

I started my card with a Whisper White base (what a surprise!) and then put together my mats and strip with Basic Gray then Baja Breeze then Ruby Red. I've been using the butterfly from the new Great Friend set in the Occasions Mini so much that my butterfly from Garden Whimsy was feeling neglected and was screaming at me to ink it up! Poor thing!;) So I inked her up in Baja Breeze and glittered her up with my 2 Way Glue Pen and some Dazzling Diamonds.
I punched the corners with my Ticket Corner Punch and added it to my mat. The sentiment is from the Great Friend set (had to use at least SOMETHING from that set!)and is punched with the Small Oval Punch, matted with the Large Oval Punch in Basic Gray and finished off with the Scallop Oval Punch in Baja Breeze. I used my 1/2" Circle Punch and my 1/4" Circle punch for the three circles in the corner and added White Gel Pen dots to the centers and to my Scallop Oval.

Stamps: Great Friend, Garden Whimsy Paper: Ruby Red, Basic Gray, Baja Breeze Ink: Baja Breeze Accessories: 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Small and Large Oval Punches, Scallop Oval Punch, 1/2" and 1/4" Circle Punches, White Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Tombow Multi Glue

It's a simple card but I like it! While I had these colors out I made a couple other cards so come check them out tomorrow!

Have a great day!
