Summertime Swing

Oh I am so glad that the My Besties Challenge has gone to a two week challenge, especially this weekend as I have only Saturday's crafting time. I am at some SU training on Sunday all day and I only get crafting time at the weekends as I am supposed to be doing my masters coursework during any free time I have during the week.

Anyway on to the card. This card is for My Besties Challenge #1 Summer Fun (I think having a play on a swing is definitely a summertime thing!), Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #32 Anything Goes and for My Besties Aussie Challenge Anything Goes with Butterflies. I found this gorgeous butterfly border in the Silhouette store and knew it would be perfect to frame a card!

And here's my card using some pretty retired patterned papers...

Papers: Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Bella Rose DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card

Inks: Copic Markers

Accessories: Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Gems from Hobbycraft, Butterfly Border from Silhouette Studio
