Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge #16

Hi all!  It's Saturday which means that today is another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  And today is my first as a member of the Design Team!  Yay! As you are reading this I am on my way to our friends cabin for a day at the beach!  It's a long weekend over here!


The Sponsor this week is no other than Cosmo Cricket!  


The challenge is to use chipboard in your creations!  I knew that I had a bunch of chipboard cute shapes that were colored and with glitter but than I realized that my little Ariel had taken it all!  I asked her if she had any left and well no!  I did have some plain chipboard so I decided to cut it with my bigz die in my big shot and make my own shapes!  I always find it fun to cut hard items in my big shot, I am seriously going to have to try metal one day!  So here is my card:

I covered the butterflies with patterned paper by Bo Bunny.  I went with white as my focal point and embossed it so that the colorful butterflies would stand out. As I was making these I thought to myself that they would make good magnets so I added some to the back!  Than to adhere them to the card I used a pop up square!  It makes it extra special for the recipient.

The back of the butterflies:

I hope that you join in this fun challenge this week!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  The prize is
2 packs of Cosmo Cricket Paper (Garden Variety and Core Impressions) and 2 packs of alphabet chipboard.  Please go to the blog for more details here.
The deadline is Friday, August 6 at midnight PST.Have a great weekend!
