Itty Bitty A Day Challenge - Day 3

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week so far.  I was back at the Physio on Tuesdays and yesterday had hardly any pain so I got into the craft room early and played.  On Tuesday my Altered Pages Order arrived and it made an appearance (well the box did) in my photo yesterday for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  I had some comments left stating they would like a closer look at the contents so I have another photo to share.



There is the New Color Sets in Gelatos, New Papers from Graphic 45 and Glitz, at the back is A Box of Rubber which is a mystery box of stamps, there is some Sari Silk Ribbons, Chipboard and a few other embellishments and Ribbons. 

So yesterday with all these items out I could not just put it away without playing a little.  I was due to make a card for Day 3 of the Itty Bitty A Day Challenge over on the Unity Show and Tell Facebook Page, so I did this with a with a couple of other challenges in mind too.

Wednesday's Card - Itty Bitty a Day Challenge


Supplies Used: 
 Dream Big Itty Bitty by Unity Stamp Co, Bohemian Bazaar Papers by Graphic 45,
 Eyelet and Scallop Border Punches by Stampin' Up!, 50's Diner Gelatos, 
Crystal Lacquer, Memento Ink Tuxedo Black, Trim and Rhinestones from Stash.



The latest color challenge at Color Throwdown was a perfect match to those colors in the new Bohemian Bazaar Papers from Graphic 45.  

Shopping our Stash was asking for you to use your oldest punches this week.  Hence my two Stampin' Up! Border Punches on this card.  These were the first two from my days as a SU Demonstrator back in 2009.

And over at the Songbird Challenge Blog (I only just found this challenge site), they were asking for you to use your favorite things.  As some of you know I love butterflies, and using my Gelatos so they were a definite must on this card.  I used the Gelatos to color my butterflies and their background, simply by drawing stripes and blending.  They are some of the new colors in the 50's Diner Pack above.

The Butterflies are from the Dream Big Itty Bitty Stamp by Unity so all of these elements made my card meet all four challenges this week.  

The Ric Rac/Scallop Trim was one I brought secondhand on Ebay along with a huge stash of other trims some years back, and I have coated my butterflies with Crystal Lacquer to give them some dimension and shine.
