Welcome to another fabulous challenge at Love To Scrap!  We have everyone's favorite challenge today..."Anything Goes".  And our sponsors are

Prize: 7 images of choice

Prize: $7 gift certificate

Prize: 3 single images of choice

My image comes from The East Wind.  She is called "Aurora Spring Butterfly".  I colored her and the butterfly and fussy cut them out then glued them to another copy of the images.  There was not a way for me to cut all the little bubbles in the air and the lines extended on the butterfly.  This was the logical choice for me.

I'm really loving the distressed look lately as is evident in the last few cards I've made.   I also finally got to use my butterfly ribbon.  I got it just before Christmas from a challenge win and I just love butterflies.  

Just before this challenge started my niece needed some birthday cards for her friends that are twins.  She came to me to get some and picked this card right off the bat.  I hope her friend liked it.

Please join us in the challenge and don't forget to check out all the amazing work from the DT here at LTSCB.  Have a magnificent day.
