Good Monday Morning Stamping Friends!

I am sooooo happy to be posting my very first card for the ABC Challenges!  We are a brand new challenge blog for All Beautiful Cards---hence ABC Challenges & I hope you play along with us!  Our challenge for you this week is to create your card with something new.....it doesn't have to be something brand new that you just bought but maybe a new technique you just learned or you're trying a sketch for the first time----you get the idea right?!!!  

The *new* things on my creation is the window I created for my butterfly along with the way I used so many ribbons on my card.  I've seen quite a few creations made with windows like this but I've never tried it & as I was adding my ribbon; I noticed that the light colors just needed a lil' extra something so I decided to add on the espresso color.  I really like the final result & I do hope I've inspired you to play along with us!  Please check out our blog to see the other lovely creations that were made & to see the guidelines for playing along with us.  Happy stamping & I can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations!!!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
