A Daring Adventure


Marriage is a daring adventure...I should know, I've been married twice. However, nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say. Thus the idea behind this engagement card.
This card was inspired by so many challenges...listed later. It was really fun making this card because I would see another challenge and think...I can do that or add that. The ovals were cut out and embossed with my nesties. The lace border is a Martha Stewart Punch and the butterfly is a Paper Shapers. The chipboard "daring" sticker is AmyButler K&Company...AND believe it or not, the four butterfies in the bottom right sector of the card are Urban Rhapsody rub-ons! The stamp is Inkadinkado. And the entire card is made out of one piece of K&Company designer paper, which was then distressed with Versamagic's pink petunia.
OK...on to the challenges...hold on because there are a few of them this time!!
One Stop Craft - spots and dots (in the paper's pattern)
Secret Crafter - anything goes
Rosie D's - spring
The Craft Garden - inspiration from photo - pink/spring
Die Cut Dreams - use 2 punches
Sophisticat - new beginnings
Pollycraft - sparkly things
Pile it On - pastel colors
Ooh la La - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - going dotty
Crafty Creations - spots and dots
Fab 'n' Funky - something new (set of chipboard stickers)
Your Next Stamp - distressing
ABC Challenge - quotation
Paper Play - good luck
Play Date Cafe - medium pink, pale pink, yellow
Pixie Dust - the power of 3 (3 buttons)
Crafty Catz - spring
Fussy and Fancy - just a little green (on chipboard "daring")
Pater Cutz - 1ribbon and 3 buttons
Stamp Something - distressing
Townscrappers - ribbon and rub-ons
